Liminal space and transformation, mythology, symbolism and meaning making. My research and experience of different philosophical approaches to the human condition. All of this has been reflected in my art.

I use a combination of traditional and digital printmaking, laser-cutting, textile and stitch to create installations, artists' books, mixed and multi-media work.
