About

I am a visual artist and am currently working through ideas based on a re-visioning of human relationship with non-human and non-living objects. Through the use of living, everyday and actual materials I provide scenarios and places for contemplation that often involve the viewer in participating  and performing the work. My work looks to our relationship with the environment as well as the historic drive of colonialism and consumerism that forms our culture, the sublime wonder of it all, its beauty and the pain of loss.
