About


I have developed an approach where the object and processes are an integral whole. My practice can be seen as a wide ranging inquiry linking notions of craft and activism, self sufficiency and community engagement. The use of raw materials and natural energy resources corresponds to a commitment to a sustainable practice where I work with re purposed earth-based materials and inventive strategies.
