My inspiration comes from the patterns and repetitive cycles of the natural world. Initially trained as a dancer, the rhythmic movements required in basketry construction allow me to approach my art practice intuitively and effortlessly as an embodied practice. Traditional crafts such as knitting, sewing and crochet learned at an early age also inform my work. Harvesting, processing and using natural materials attune me to ancient practices where respect for natural resources challenge me to tread lightly and constantly evaluate my role in a modern consumerist society. Most recently, I have begun to produce a series of work that reflects my ongoing fascination with paper and its enduring use throughout time.
