My work focuses on site responsive sculptural installations, that explore how the transformation of spaces and manipulations of form can affect the viewers' emotional state. By constructing installations from abstract forms, I create immersive compositions that evoke emotion and engagement from the viewer as they experience the space.
The process of construction for the work begins without a specific, predetermined final outcome or design, with meaning and inspiration being found instead within the act of making. This allows complete freedom for the work to evolve organically through my intuitive response to the space. Crafted through struggle, meditation and letting go, this process of creation results in each installation being unique to the space in which it was created.
