Artist Statement

My work investigates everyday matter and the embedded material language that exists between our bodies, our possessions and our environment. Through the making of intricate photographic collages, soft sculpture and installations, I make connections between the material and the immaterial, the visceral and the technological, two dimensions and three dimensions and ultimately, the conscious and unconscious.
