Statement

If we practice detachment from our thoughts we learn to observe them differently as though we are looking from the outside in. When we do this, we might find that our thinking belongs to a different narrative to the one that is before us. The body of my work is centered upon transforming an existing composition into another, an old story into a new one. I work with things that I find. Much of my practice is unintentional and is often only realized when I identify something that kicks-starts a memory or thought, a stained white sheet or a lifeless carcass abandoned on tarmac, something that I can change, manipulate, modify or ultimately destroy.

Biography

I am a self-taught artist working mainly with found or discarded objects. My work includes contemporary taxidermy, digital collage, textiles and installation.
