Language is at the forefront of my practice. Ideas materialise across a variety of disciplines including sculpture, printmaking, textiles, drawing, text and sound. My work challenges the potential and limitations of communication, semiotics, human behaviour, and the familiarity of language.

I am interested in duality and the blurry lines between the notions of order & chaos, fact & fiction, public & private and beginning & end. This is further explored by challenging preconceptions of the materials themselves.

Noticing the peripheral moments of everyday life often serve to ignite a starting point for my ideas. Popular opinions and visual representations from the outside world are embedded within the work, creating multiple connections and loose associations that subtly comment on the world in which we live in.
