Project summary:

My practice explores ways of working with nature, involving spending time foraging, collecting materials and thinking of ways to combine these to create new meanings. The areas of media that I work are diverse including sculpture, installation, sound, video, photography, painting, printmaking, and are driven by the conceptual ideas behind the work. 

I am in the process of setting up projects with new collaborators, including students, whilst researching the area of making work to be viewed by non human animals. My project 'Curiosities For Cats' is developing as a collaboration between discussions with artists, presents from their cats, documentation of this, and experimentation with translating it into an art medium, with a view to presenting the work to a feline audience. The resident Kingsway cat, Bobby, might be the lucky viewer of this collection.

Also on the scheme I aim to spend time continuing to build my website and have a more professional web presence.
