My work embraces concepts of memory, a place and what lies at the end of our perceptions through material paradoxes.

I am particularity drawn to working with glass because we live in vitreous environments; it’s a material that surrounds us in almost every part of life. Glass allows light to fill space, letting objects visually materialise and dematerialise simultaneously whilst describing interior and exterior space. It is charged with fascinating material paradoxes like: fragility, solidity, liquidity, solidity, transparency, translucency & opacity – It is a hybrid that illustrates notions of the human condition and ways of seeing.
