Artist Statement

Representation of place and the history it holds is essential to my working practice. Growing up near a quarry I have always been fascinated by the site itself. The harshness of the landscape and its industrial past and present continue to fuel my making. Creating my artwork allows me to develop a closer connection to the quarry.

 

As part of my practice, I have developed an affinity for paper and its properties. I began experimenting with folding, ripping, bending, and tearing into the material then decided to introduce the same methods when working with clay. Navigating different materials and their intrinsic qualities have also played a major role in my recent body of work.
