My work is process led and can be labour intensive. I enjoy the challenge of working on pieces over time allowing my concepts to change. This can mean new bodies of work come about and that’s exciting. I enjoy using an eclectic range of objects together that enable me to use pattern, shape and collage. I love to layer materials and allow signs of wear and tear to show. As well as this I combine found objects and recycled materials with processes like bronze casting and printing.
My current body of work was created throughout the lockdown period when my garden became an outdoor studio and my materials came from anything that I could find in my garden. I mixed and matched them with pieces that I had already made.
Working outside has brought shadows, reflections, lighting, photography and sound into my work.
