My practice is influenced by site and space, mind and body, and develops work that engages with the physical presence of being in response to given spaces and places. The work acts as a response to particular interests at any given time, unstatic and ever changeable depending on its site.

I have consideration of the human nature of existence within the natural and uncontrollable forces around us. I tend to use materials ‘as they are’ rather than replicate through other mediums.
My ‘projects’ are intervention pieces; applying random everyday objects that we often take for granted to be presented in awkward places or distorted, deconstructed conditions. My hope is to invoke in the participants/viewers a sense of un-realisation by creating spaces that disturb or stimulate the mental process through some form of physical engagement.
