Creating with my hands - crocheting, sewing, felting - is a fundamental element in my work, as the manipulation of materials connects with my whole body. My practice explores tacit and embodied knowledge through repetitive action and creating in multiples. Being in the flow of making multifarious forms while they build up shape, is labour intensive. Crafting each piece is engaging tactility and physicality and is unfolding in time.
Much of my work is based on how belonging and feeling grounded in different environments affects us physically and emotionally. The materiality of the found, discarded or washed up object that operates within a cycle of decay and regeneration, recurrently shapes my association with place.
Working as an artist facilitator, where process is the catalyst and communication happens through making has infiltrated my practice.
Originally from County Louth in Ireland, I live and work in Southeast London.
