Artist Statement:

My practice investigates the affective, transformational possibilities of an art object. An embodied process and a shared perceptual language with non-human ‘others’ gives rise to my figurative, metaphoric ‘merges’ that blur the perceived boundaries between human and non-human, flesh and clay. They simultaneously attract and repel, evoking an ‘empathetic unease’ around the complexities and contradictions that perplex human-animal relationship.
