Artist statement

My artistic practice is concerned with noticing and extracting elements from the everyday, before subtly changing and placing them back in their original contexts. My interests span threshold spaces and moments betwixt and between, explored through participatory performance, especially walking, and other more-or-less embodied experiences. Re-performance, or retracing of footsteps, are significant features of my artworks, exploring places and moments in time.
