I am interested in objects that have an enigmatic presence or ritual function. I like the chaotic energy, vitality and density of organic forms. My work is influenced by psychoanalytic and feminist ideas. I regard my creative process at its best as a dialogue with an unknown part of myself, which throws up personal myths and archetypes that give structure and meaning to different stages of my life. I tend to work in series in response to a particular material, process or place. The work inhabits the spaces between textiles, sculpture and painting. Digital photography and video are used to situate the work in landscape contexts.
