Eleven of Ninety-Seven Mud Balls, 2020, locally sourced clay and earth, dimensions variable (detail)

My work uses sculpture and drawings to explore ideas relating to senses of place, time scales, material transformations and our ever-changing relationship to the natural world.

I like to work with non-traditional art materials such as locally-sourced unfired clay, earth and other materials which provide a direct link to a particular site. This method of working enables my practice to be more ecologically conscious as there is minimal environmental impact. Works can be broken down, reformed and reworked into something new. The ephemeral nature of my work becomes a poetic reference to natural and immaterial processes such as fragility, growth, decay and impermanence.

The Wetlands (surface study series) 2020, graphite on cotton rag paper, 210 mm x 297 mm

Repetition II, 2020, clay on paper, 148 mm x 210 mm

There is a simplicity and meditative aspect to the making of the work which reflects a yearning to be more mindful and present.
