Statement

I am a mixed media artist, exploring themes in Relationships, Sexual Politics and the Cycle of Life.

I am particularly attracted to Flora's life cycle; I link these to human experience using Anthropomorphism and Pareidolia, these are documented via Photographs & Sculptures, where inspiration from the natural world has become fundamental to my practice.

My sculptures are made from non-traditional materials, based on seeds, their shape & form are often reminiscent of human body parts

Currently my work focuses on pregnancy, motherhood and in particular the dynamics of Mother-Daughter Relationships, Since becoming a Mother myself, I have become obsessed with trying to document 'Moments' & 'Memories', and the 'Essence of my mother', in an attempt to understand the complex relationship that I have with my own mother.
