    Artist Statement

    I am a contemporary artist living and working in the UK.  I have a First Class BA (Hons) in Contemporary Art and Design (2016) and a MA Fine Art with Distinction (2018).

    My work is concerned with fragmentation, remaking and wholeness and the potential of materials to change or transform.

    I prefer to use found and recycled objects and these are generally worked by hand using traditional tools and techniques. The slower process of hand working encourages a way of seeing and then re-seeing the materials and allows new ideas and forms to emerge in a dialogue with the materials.

    I am also interested in the passing of time recorded in the objects themselves, and through my interventions.

    Working to a domestic scale encourages my work to be looked at carefully and to find a place in the home as well as the gallery.
