I am a multidisciplinary Artist working in Sculpture, Performance, Film and Assemblage. I often work outside of the gallery space and involve the public in the production of my work.

 

A sense of place is very important to me.

 

Making work outdoors, embedding a piece in it's environment, utilizing found objects and involving the public are the foundation of my practice.

 

I aim to make pieces which bring wonder, beauty and humour to the everyday.
