About

I am a visual artist who joins a material-driven practice with concerns around woman/nature stereotypes, disconnection from nature and the experience of maternal loss. Working primarily with sculpture, I move between synthetic and natural materials to create ambiguous forms. The medical specimen is often referenced through clinical staging whilst interweaving ideas of absence, growth, fragility and interrupted processes.
