A little bit about my work

I am an art eco-activist, a maker of gentle protest works and with my work, I contemplate our impact on the earth, what we denude or enhance, whether that be in terms of our planet or our communities. To that end, I use waste, ecologically sound or vintage materials including textile fibres, yarns, and fabric to create dialogue about our environmental impact and the human cost of consumption.

I use a variety of methods such as sculpting, papermaking, mending and stitch to convey this visual language within my work.

I am a member of Seam Collective, and the Lead Artist and Curator of the ongoing collaborative creative project called ‘FIFTY BEES: The Interconnectedness of All Things’.

 

If you would like to know a little bit more about the FIFTY BEES project or my work in general, you can hear about by clicking on the photograph here. I was honoured to be interviewed by Catherine of Arnold’s Attic and it is that interview that can be found by clicking on the image.
