Artworks

I work in a range of media to explore my ongoing concerns with ecology, books as dynamic sites, spatial poetics, and embodiment.

Text-based works, drawing, book works, textiles, land art, photography and sound allow me different perspectives on these topics, inform one another, and are an active part of my research.

In these works, language is delayed, absent, blurred, sliced, broken down into stitch and shape. It is ephemeral, translucent, rotting, occupying spaces and surfaces that are hard and soft, interior and exposed. Language both is and is not the work.

My book works and textiles have been shown in group exhibitions since 2007, including at Norwich Millennium Library, Forge Mill Needle Museum in Redditch, and at Farnham Maltings.

This page shows a few examples of my research practices and finished pieces.
