I’m an artist, working predominantly in performance, interdisciplinary sculpture and drawing though I’ve also often incorporated site-specificity and duration as defining artistic elements.

A commitment to social engagement forms the basis of my creative practice and I value how absurdity can be used as a catalyst for interaction. In light of our climate changing, I have growing uncertainty and deep concerns for what the future holds; this is reflected in my recent work, which explores themes that range from the projected impacts of climate change, to the sustainability of water supplies and the adaptive reuse of waste materials.
