Artist statement

Working with living sculpture and installation, I create spaces and moments which connect the smallest, poetic actions of plants with precarious issues facing humanity. My background as an activist and campaigner on social and environmental justice issues informs my thinking and making. My practice centres on the afterlife of the discarded and is rooted in small acts of reparation - sewing scraps together, watering fragile seedlings and nurturing the regenerative power of composting from waste materials.
