I am a visual artist working in mixed media collage, assemblage, sculpture, installation and lens-based work. As an artist I engage in an intuitive process of searching, gathering, envisioning and construction, with a particular emphasis on the representative functions of materials. I am interested in the links between events of personal significant and those that express facets of a collective unconscious and consciousness.
My creative practice works consciously and subconsciously to explore and reveal ongoing and re-occurring themes such as, mental and bodily sensation, trauma, transience, transformation, death, otherness and the surreal. The creation of something new from the fragments of that which has been broken is a significant objective of the work and forms the basis of my compositions. The process of deconstruction to reconstruction often utilized, where the artwork is made from an assembly of different forms, resulting in the creation of a new whole, is a vital part of the meanings within the work itself and restorative in its nature.
