'I work in an organic and intuitive way using natural and found materials that allow the beauty of the materials to be seen using a wide variety of mediums such as print, installation, sculpture, and sound. I like exploring the ephemeral quality of memory and the spaces it inhabits and the transient nature of our lives and the things we collect along the way.'
'I am excited and looking forward to my time at South Square and exploring the landscape around Thornton, an area that is new to me.'
