About my work
I spend a lot of time thinking about plants, food, the horizon, how far away the nearest body of water is, maps, and the weather. How does our environment shape us, and vice versa? How does the artificial mesh with the natural? I work in paint, pencil, ink, screen-printing, fibres and found objects: mediums which allow me to work intuitively as I explore the relationships between humans and the earth.
