I am an artist working across sculpture, text, performance and installation, to address process, labour, and the everyday fantastic. My sculptural work is often playful and ambiguous, appearing as artifacts or props that exist in an imagined future without corporeal human forms. I am interested in investigating what it means to be a maker of physical objects in our computerised society. Drawing from my background in Sunderland, my recent work has explored ideas of generational time-stretch, through juxtaposing historic forms of making in the domestic sphere with the unseen labour that comprises a large part of contemporary life.  My text work and the performance of this work is a way of revealing and recording the stories that inform my practice.
