Its All In Your Head

Inspired from already existing horror films, I have created a series of  Horror themed sculptures which outlines my personal fears.  The pieces are created with air drying clay and then are finished with acrylic paint

Conversations with myself and identity

Growth Lines

In my studio practice I work primarily with sculpture and installation. This project began as an exploration into the isolation of mental illness. As a woman with Bipolar Disorder and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, I have spent periods of my life feeling extremely isolated and this experience is what I was initially hoping to portray through […]

Faces

I’m interested in how a person can be represented in a portrait in a way that emphasises elements of their personality. I have researched colour theory and colour psychology as a way to examine how different colours can be used to represent different emotions and personality traits.

I’m now placing that fascination with being ‘inside’ into a Fine Art context and allowing my audience to access my […]

I have been creating small scale landscapes on furniture using papier- mâché, which looks very similar to snow when it’s white and similar to rock when combined with watered down black ink. Making my work […]

Without a Trace

I am conscious of the current environmental challenges, and my practice seeks to address the changes taking place across the natural world as a result of human interference.  I focus on materials that are organic, and possess a fragile, translucent quality that leave little trace or impact on the surrounding context.  Materials are mainly hand-sewn, […]
