It is through site specific, textile and mixed media sculpture and installation that I hope to explore the capabilities of organic and biodegradable materials to express narratives between myself, humanity and our relationship to nature, time and place. Through ephemeral artworks I follow the patterns of growth and decay, considering art as a process rather than one fixed creation. Having been strongly influenced by an upbringing within family agriculture and rural communities in the UK, natural cycles of organic forms have always been a way to document the passage of time, in order to show change, transformation and to prove existence. The work focusses on the gradual biodegrading of ephemeral materials and the process traces they leave behind within the natural landscape.
