Project summary:

For me, art practice is a way of being: a means to make sense of everyday experiences, life and living.  I engage with less conscious modes of perception such as touch, hearing, memory, sense of time, atmosphere: when mind, body and world interact. I actively embrace intuition and the opportunities of chance encounter to integrate items, materials or ideas, as they emerge with significance in the moment. I often use archival research, drawing, photography, audio, video, digital manipulation and textile processes to make artworks and installations that invite people to participate. Movement is a constant energy within my work, as too are colour, myth and legend. I find Carl Jung’s ideas of the shadow, archetypes and the collective unconscious, fascinating and compellingOther influences include animism, spiritual ecology and the esoteric. I read widely and recently have been appreciating the work of Jane Bennett, David Abram, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Rudolf Steiner.
