My artwork address issues around environmental change and social justice by drawing from across disciplines. I examine the questions surrounding our human relationship with nature, and the complex social and ecological issues that emerge from this.
My work is often made with the participation of people who have a lived experience of displacement and of seeking sanctuary. These participatory projects explore ecological and social issues through communal experiences within rural landscapes and examine issues such the importance of access to nature and green spaces and how a sense of homelessness – of not belonging – is produced through exclusion.
