    Overview

    Memory, re-enactment and repair are key concerns in my current practice and were the focus of the Professional Doctorate in Fine Art, which I completed in 2014. My work is inspired by and rooted in my own personal life experiences; referencing family, religion, ritual and my participation in field archery. My approach to research, questioning my everyday and personal experiences helps me to maximize my initial interest and understanding of a subject before exploring it through the making of the work. For me the choice of process and or technical approach depends on the development of the idea. The notion of exploring ambiguities and correspondences between media naturally excites me as I strive not to be restricted by my use of media.
