My creative journey is a very personal one, in which I am reflecting upon emotional states and traumatic experiences. Writing is an instrumental part of this journey, as a medium I find it can be a very powerful means of expressing different concepts; be these confrontational or therapeutic. Letter writing in particular has helped me reconnect with thoughts, emotions and memories that have been buried for decades.

I use the most suitable medium to best represent the thoughts and feelings I want to articulate. This has resulted in me combining analogue and digital techniques, such as embroidery with photography, for the unexpected and magical images that can be captured, and projections for the light and its ability to bring everything to life.
