How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

My work explores both absence and presence and the unknown spaces in between. Ephemerality and fragility are two elements often seen in my work as I attempt to make sense of human existence and the finest of threads that hold us. My work is often inspired by dreams and the images briefly retained upon waking, and I value these as coming from an 'other' space.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Being an artist is for me to live my life with authenticity. Before I was able to work in this way I knew a huge part of myself was dormant; expressing myself as an artist is as vital as breathing.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I am a Fine Artist, working with natural, found and repurposed materials as much as possible.

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

I follow self-led study in my garden studio, working daily whenever possible.
