CV/BIO 

Through film, sculpture and performance I search for a sense of embodiment of material and location, a tactile search which questions the body’s boundaries with surroundings. The colour blue is a strong feature throughout my practice and I have come to recognise it as a holding space.Representing both sky and sea, air and water, blue is both a body in itself and also a place of suspense for our bodies and minds.
