I am a dedicated artist with diverse interests in landscape, architecture, politics and humanity and my practice is rooted in people and place.
I am a self taught sculptor. I respond to people, place and feelings, exploring the capacity for solid materials to examine human emotion, creating a dialogue between materials and people to enable a conversation about the human condition. I am primarily a metalworker working with new, found and recycled materials. I often take a found object using its history as the starting point then meld it with other materials to ask questions about the human condition. I am currently using the power of casting to explore the nature of grief and our ability to come to terms with loss.
I also make sculptures that create a dialogue between the built environment in the city, nature and people and many of her sculptures and installations are inspired by her home city of London.
Although I am primarily a sculptor working in new, found and recycled materials I enjoy working in different mediums. These include paint and print, mark making, audio-visual works and physical installations.
I find joy working in 3 dimensions, creating sculptures, installations and jewellery in metal and other materials
I love exploring metal, casting pewter, forming and forging mild steel, melting and texturising copper, bending brass and speculating with cast iron and the detritus from the smelting process.
