“Working predominantly in ceramics, I create artworks that peer into our interconnected relationship with nature, questioning the evolving patterns in which humans and plants co-exist. I am interested in the tension and space between managed and cultivated landscapes and the resourcefulness of nature, through my work I pull focus to the margins and intersections. By creating imaginary worlds, enlarging or miniaturising specific compositions, I hope to encourage a deeper investigation into how plants behave and how their behaviour can help us reconsider our own approach to communities and landscape.
I often create work in response to participation of other people, most recently through Arts Council funded projects Plants, Porcelain, People with Norwich International Youth Project and Caroline Fisher projects and Lambeth Wilds with Lambeth Young Carers and Clay for Dementia group at the Garden Museum.”
