Having graduated in 2012 with an MA in Sculptural Practice my current practice is project-based, working in a variety of media including photography, painting and sculpture.
I work best when immersing myself in and responding to an environment or project over a period of time. Beginning with a concept, I gather information, working intuitively and allowing ideas to breathe until they start to take shape. Photography is a tool for me to record, review and contemplate and inspires work in other media. It can also become the medium itself. The concept is an important part of my work.
The media used in the finished work is the one that best expresses the subject matter.
I prefer to use existing materials – something that has already had a life and preferably comes from the environment in which I am working – I am very conscious of its previous use and how I am at once subverting that, but also giving it a new lease of life.
In addition to exhibiting at various galleries I have been artist in residence at Moverons Farm and the Roman River Music Festival.
