Describe Your Artistic Practice

I flow between, and knit together, the diverse practices of material exploration, environmental activism, and personal transformation. The resulting pieces can be meaningfully placed in aesthetic, personal and socio-environmental contexts, while simultaneously remaining playful, hopeful and suggestive of growth and life.

When I travel I always...

have a project to work on. When we took my mum to England I wove baskets out of Bindweed in every town we stayed in and a fedora style hat in Mousehole Cornwall, because we were there for 5 days so I could do a bigger project! And Last March I whittled my way around the North Island of New Zealand!

Favourite expression:

OHHMAAAAGAWD (like a valley grrl) or ahhhhmaaaazing! Because there’s a lot of ahhhhmazing in this world.

My favourite hike:

Circling Buntzen Lake
