I am a multidisciplinary artist. Experimentation with a variety of materials is an important part of my creative practice. I collect and hoard materials to use in my work. It is like an excavation, digging, finding, cataloguing, and sorting. I think of my work as visual cabinets of curiosity. I like the narratives that are created by juxtapositions of different objects and materials. Layers of past, present, and future merge.

My work explores the links between art, archaeology, and philosophy. I focus on creating ambiguous narratives and questioning the nature of ‘reality’. I am interested in obscure organic forms, like blurred memories, that may represent natural forces, objects in the landscape, or the human figure.
