Artist's statement

My current research is focused on how specific factors such as materials, objects (cast and found), and photographs might combine and interact to create a narrative related to themes of home, dislocation, belonging, and loss. The materials I use   pierced paper, thread, shredded tulle   are purposefully delicate, ephemeral and unstable.

I have been testing the limits of material and form   how opposites such as strength and delicacy, impermanence and stability, accretion and disintegration come together and fall apart   and how these paradoxes might be expressed through mixed media sculpture.
