I live and work in Herefordshire, United Kingdom.
Early sensory connections to my birthplace, Vancouver Canada, nestled between the ocean and mountains and memories of a childhood in the Midlands countryside, permeates my practice.
My practice explores humanness- navigating outside-in, inside-out and the in-between.
My artwork incorporates my surroundings, explores beginnings, endings, our bodies, identity, drawing on Kleinian thinking, motherhood, abjection (Kristeva. J, The Powers of Horror (1982) ) and my experience as a Child Psychotherapist.
Intrigued by the fragile border between our conscious and unconscious my sculptural forms and non-forms explore our internal and external landscapes.
In the making process I fuse and transform things. Combining natural and manufactured materials, giving them space, following their rhythm, malleability and resistance. Imbued with emotional memories they acquire a life of their own.
My sculptural work can simultaneously attract and repel, evoke complex emotions by revealing imagined physical and psychological aspects of ourselves.
