My sculptural practice pursues the re-purposing of found objects.
This has been a constant in my work, bringing attention to what we discard as rubbish, changing the useless to the meaningful, making small comments on our consumer world.
Techniques I use are often unconventional, and are always evolving. My journey of collecting and creating artwork pays homage to a playful joy of making, and using visuals in sharing stories.
Combining the organic and manmade in blending stitching, weaving, and wrapping is a signature of my art practice.
Much of my inspiration comes from the natural world and the immense variety and beauty of the Australian bush.
