As a sculptural based artist currently studying for my postgraduate degree in Fine Art my practice is comprised of several avenues, however predominantly explores themes of value, heritage, myth and narrative within the context of the object. Although my primary discipline is sculpture, I use a number of multi-disciplined techniques within my practice in order to do justice to the concepts I explore. I gather much of my inspiration from the fusion of historical and heritage based, themes, processes and locations merged with contemporary techniques, to create objects which are reminiscent of the past yet provocative and relevant to the present day. My work is often site-specific and uses fragments of memory and ambiguous forms. Material is of high importance to my way of working, as it correlates directly to the language of the object.
