My work is centred around the found object, but this also overlaps with notions of excavation and the land. Acting like a mediator, selecting and presenting items for the consideration of the viewer. The process of how I work is dictated by the objects I find and this is where I find inspiration and the journey of creating. Museums are a strong influence as museums can live in our cupboards and imaginations, awaiting their moment of arrival. Printmaking is a strong factor in my work where I try to push the boundaries of printmaking to a new refreshing approach which is often thought to be a very traditional medium. This discipline is often collaged and mixed with painting/drawing/sewing/assemblage. The desire to truly understand our relationship with objects through a cross disciplinary approach is my focus as an artist.
