BIO

I build my practice on my experiences of life, channelling my feelings into my creations. I am also interested in art therapy and art that helps people, my art involves therapeutic processes that eases my own pressures of life. Through sculptures I aim to evoke communication between an individual and their nature, with consideration to their own experiences. With this series, individuals may associate knitting with personal involvement and memories. Knitting brought people together in WWII for survival and used to be a family tradition passed down through generations, but is now more commonly used for therapeutic recreation. In the space and in contrast to the plaster, the knitted yarn stands out like soft spots reaching for each other through the space. Relationships, whether it be with an acquaintance, friend, or family member, have the ability to improve our experiences throughout life, and these sculptures explore the idea of being connected within those relationships. Steve Duck has been influential to the insight on relationships throughout this project with his book ‘Relating to Others’ that explores the importance of relationships to survival. People and art are still of great interest to me and my research and understanding is still growing.
