My work looks at the natural world and geological time in relation to changing environments. I am interested in how we can draw inspiration from the natural world for a more sustainable future, creating closed cycles of resource management, more durable, adaptable built environments, and stronger, more sustainable self-sufficient communities that work together, on a local and global basis, as we face increasing environmental and socio-political challenges. I document changing environments, through photography, sculpture, illustration and installation. My sculptures highlight the bare frameworks of dynamic natural forms, examples of resilience, strength and longevity in their simplest form, and interdependent systems that support life.

My practice delves into links between poetry, family history, industrialisation, imperialism and patriarchy in relation to representations of and writings about nature. These efforts involve reaching into notions of formed and fabulated nature/s such as gardens, landscaped urban spaces and plucking the symbolic threads between these. Presently I am exploring the potential of both wool and soap as mediums for articulating ecofeminist ideas at the interface of domesticity and ecology.
