All of my work – 2D and 3D – draws on the human form to create a narrative that explores how we interact with the space around us. It acknowledges that every space has a history of movement – a complex integration of accumulation and change, transitioning and overlaying human activity through the lens of time.

Time echoes, figures stand proud in the present and breathe softly into the past. Questions of identity, memory, relationships, and the essence of the human connection.

My current work is made up of figurative pieces that through simplification of form, open up interpretations to the intricacies of human interactions. Human relationships do not occur in isolation, they unfold against the backdrop of our surroundings and circumstances. Some relationships deplete us, some feed us and as the complexities multiply, we project our personal histories, hope and desires through our body and movement in space. These elements are not separate to us – they are part of what make us individual.
