    Artist Statement

    Gently militant feminism; family mundanity; death and loss; our relationships with the animals with whom we share our living spaces - all this is examined through the prism of the everyday. How we encounter, experience and incorporate our daily existence informs my work, emerging through a variety of media, actions and interactions. My personal practice is currently enriched by collaboratory and participatory making.
