As an interdisciplinary artist who works primarily in installation and sculpture, my practice derives from a process of accumulation. I collect discarded found objects to produce small, intimate sculptures which reflect minute details of normally unnoticed everyday matter. Through this process of collection I create something that, from a distance, looks insignificant. However, upon close examination the sculptures become a detailed and complex body of work. Made from forgotten things and re-presented with wax as a binder, the small sculptures—often no larger than a thumb nail—form a home for that which would normally be lost. Initially exploring journeys and passages, my work speaks to the everyday mundane and repetition. My artworks form a nest for discarded objects which would otherwise deteriorate into nothing.

We also acknowledge and extend our respect to the Traditional Owners of all lands on which our work is viewed, shared and enjoyed, and to all Elders, past, present and emerging.
