While felting may be considered a traditional and predominantly amateur technique, I am interested in its potential for creating intense visual experiences in a contemporary fine art context. My work visualises various aspects of the human body, including bacteria, diseases, and medical images of organs in large three-dimensional felted sculptures. Using bright colours and bizarre but visually pleasing forms, I aim to draw the viewer into the sculpture through feelings of unease, provoking a desire to look closer. I reimagine anatomical imagery revealing the human body's unique and interesting detail as a work of art. 

While my sculpture contains themes of femininity and otherworldliness, its meaning resides in the viewers' encounters with the art piece. These encounters are intended to provoke questions; to implicate the viewer in the process of uncovering meaning on a personal level.
