My work is about the connections to spirituality and mindfulness. With two key elements, mess and order. “I am not a perfectionist; in fact, I am an imperfectionist.” Keeping in mind the traditions of sculpture my practice is to push the boundaries of what art can be. I use a method of process-led automatism to create ink and bleach drawings, steel welded paintings along with life cast sculptures of fractured organic and inorganic materials, relating to the themes of intertwining humans with nature and feminism, in industrial man-made materials, raising the sense of the uncanny and how mediums mix and work in a space together, often in questionable ways.
As an artist I believe action and experience is an artist’s right to explore. The process of making is a time to play and to develop through mistakes, exploring imperfection creates beauty in the unknown creating new forms of expression.
