I am a multi-disciplinary artist working mainly in 3D. My interest and excitement lies in engaging with materials physically to explore and test ideas in making. In our current consumerist society, fast paced production and excessive waste enables us to overlook the everyday materials around us. By mostly working with materials found, collected, or selected for their unique function or usefulness, my practice seeks to give an opportunity to recognise and appreciate the things that occupy our space and live alongside us, but are so easily disregarded.
My artistic approach is process driven with a focus on investigation and discovery led by the potential of the material I am working with. This way of working has led to a playful approach to making, as I balance my intention as an artist to 'control' against the push back of the given material to behave in its own way. I have found that working sculpturally with materials of a tactile nature satisfies my need to engage physically with materials to best understand them.
