Through the pairing of unconventional methods with unrealised relationships I create convoluted contraptions that explore possibilities, connections and interactions while questioning our reliance on technology and consumption.

“My art practice is multidisciplinary with sound, video, photography, printmaking and performance being the most common protagonists.”

Having spent many years using the manipulation of readymades as a way of commenting on technology and consumption, I am currently developing a more metaphoric and abstract approach through patchworking and ceramics along with references to and use of water and fire while retaining time and electro-technological elements. My aim is to invoke thinking and innovation to inspire more of us to steer away from being just consumers towards becoming creators.
