My art practice looks into the experience that occurs as a result of the artistic interaction between the body and material. I examine “expressive objects” a manifestation of this process that embodies a sense of emotion and engagement beyond their physical form. Seeking a subjective balance I am particularly drawn to textures, shapes, layers, folds, and complex combinations of these elements. I often use traditional techniques and mediums, applying them
to a contemporary context. I work with locally sourced materials, usually repurposed or recycled, characterized by tactile surfaces, plasticity, and impermanence - paper, textile, wood, and clay. I aim to facilitate a dialogue between the physical and emotional realms, to create a safe space for contemplation and reflection.
