My practise is a visual exploration into the language of crafting and its inherent connection to human use. With a range of tactile practices, I delve into the physical essence of objects and their material make-up, often allowing the process to guide my work. What fascinates me most about art is its ability to capture and immortalize the fleeting moments, memories, and relationships that make up our human experience. My aim is to create tangible embodiments of our lived connections, reinvigorating both ancient and modern crafts while reigniting a sense of wonder and reverence for the fundamental technologies that shaped our world. Place also plays a significant role in my practise, whether situated within the natural world, domestic environments, or galleries. The context of my work – from inception to exhibition – plays an essential role in it overall impact, even more so when engaging with a community.
As a community artist, I believe that the relationship between making and the everyday is a vital part of our collective human experience. That's why I love working with others to rediscover the art within the mundane objects that surround us. Together, I believe, we can celebrate the beauty and wisdom of the everyday, infusing it with the magic of art and making.
