I have always been surrounded by art; by the continuous layering of gel in the garden, bookshelves filled with the Renaissance and Expressionism, the bustle of keen students in the garage. For me, making art is a part of everyday life, a way to relax and unwind. It has also, however, become a tool to explore and think about people and the world. Much of my work is concerned with the human form, and thus often relates to issues closely tied to identity and human experience. I use a range of media including drawing, collage and metal to explore different ways of representing the body. For example, a recent collage exhibited at the Tap Gallery dealt with issues of human rights, while a sculptural piece on the We Dream, We Speak exhibition focused on the maternal figure.
