Notions of the body, beauty and making in mixed media remain central to the work. An innovative use of mixed media often combine with delicate printed imagery with materials such as feathers, leather, wood, silk, stones, silver and vintage objects. Most of the work is created by hand but also utilizes new technologies such as laser cutting, digital print and 3d printing.
Inspiration stems from on-going research into memorial, superstition, death and beauty, the uncanny and an overall feeling of storytelling and dark otherworldliness
