I make art in response to my lived experience of place and my work is rooted in spending time outdoors; walking, wild swimming, collecting and remembering are all part of my process. I work both in the studio and on site, using camera-less photography, painting, assemblage and stitch, natural, recycled and repurposed materials, and the work is often a collaboration with elements of the site such as the wind, the sea or the more-than-human inhabitants.

In this era of climate breakdown and mass extinction, my response to place inevitably references and tries to articulate the complexity of our collective response to this lived reality. I work with multiple different ways of knowing place, including data driven knowledge.I enjoy making work that inspires joy and a curious response, as I believe this creates a deeper connection, and a space for questioning, reflection and exchange.
