My practice takes form through sculpture, installation and textiles and investigates
the desirability of objects through sensuous built and bodily forms. Through processes
associated with furniture making and craft, my work focuses on our physical and
psychological relationships to objects and to lived spaces.
Wood working processes such as turning and carving, implicate the imperfect hand of
the maker while forms closely related to furniture conjure the lived space. Uncanny
and irregular compositions deflect an immediate interpretation and offer room for an
investigation of the built material environment.
