I work intuitively with materials, adopting an ‘automatic’ approach driven by the subconscious, apparent contradictions surface as I play with the opposing intensities of laborious (hand building in clay) processes and quick impulsive gestures. I am interested in our relationship with ‘objects’ and the physical act of making with ones hands, exploring processes and production as a way of understanding or interpreting the connection we have to our environment. A large part of my practice involves layering of materials and exploring and responding to contextual connections through playful enquiry – drawing on ideas of expressionism, symbolism, feminism, labour and the passing of time. Evoking memories and exploring the transient nature of life concurrent with the longevity of cultural memory.
