Biography

My arts current practice draws upon my interests in stage magic and folk traditions. Props and costume are combined with song, text and other activities creating strange rituals. Placed within this context the magical effect becomes a mode of symbolic demonstration, creating narratives that often reference cultural myths and histories of the places that I live.
