    Artist Statement

    "Our own journeys are interconnected to our sense of place.  Our true selves are being challenged with the ongoing social, economic and environmental changes in front of us".

    Using analogue photography, video and cameraless alternative printing, my process is based on our natural landscape, ecology and science, connecting universal perspectives.  In 2020 I signed up to the Culture Declares Emergency pledge collaborating with artists to bring about change and inform others through art and culture concerning our global climate emergency.
