My practice in sculpture has become concerned with that of the exploration of imagery and materials relative to that of time, ruin, and memory in order to produce new and testing works. The predominant use of metal in my work has allowed me to explore scale by producing large sculptures and explore its aesthetic position in relation to such themes. Using narrative in both a personal and historical context i hope to create a body of work that becomes relational and universal to those viewing it. Using metal which is predominantly  viewed as an industrial material has not only allowed me to explore the craftsmanship involved in the construction of such pieces, but also the long term implications of basing my practice around craft as opposed to concept; Making a clear stand against the rapid decline of skill based art making. 

Metal as a material performs transient and ever changing functions in our day to day lives. Steel for example builds power lines and props up buildings; it’s also used to create delicate products such as needles and jewelry. Using this as inspiration I have recently embarked on bespoke jewelry collection as a collaboration with clothing company Terrible Movement.  Creating stand alone pieces which redefine the balance between the toughness and beauty of raw material, the industrial and the delicate.. 

GAGGLE:
I am also part of 22-piece 'alternative choir' called Gaggle. We perform all over the country and internationally, whilst wearing weird bright costumes and facepaint. We have been involved in all sorts ranging from Women for Women International, the Womens Library, fashion shows, videos and music Festivals.
