Artist’s statement

Research Overview

Current Creative Practice
I am fascinated with tonal nuances that evolve through photographic image making using found objects. As a body of work is built, themes and narratives emerge that anchor my photograms in time and place. ​
Current work with insect shells and flora resonates with themes of climate change. Through cataclysmic events such as bush fires my photograms reflect the regenerative power of nature to show hope and optimism for the future. ​

My sculpture practice currently explore the timeless human practice of building structures for shelter. ​

Shelters celebrate the joy of construction without the constraints of function! ​
Bottlebrush twigs are the building materials I use to seek a balance between aesthetic pleasure and structural unity
