I am a multidisciplinary Artist working in installation, film and assemblage.

 

My work addresses social interaction, global inter connectivity, the environment, borders and a sense of place.

 

My work recently has focused on large scale interventions involving the public and mirrors. These pieces have been activist in their nature and mostly responding to political events - including immigration and civil rights.
