My art practice is driven by my environmentalist concerns. I use textiles and mixed media to explore surfaces, traces and materials of the Anthropocene. Made with recycled and second-hand materials, my work promotes sustainability and highlights the physical and ecological impacts of industrial expansion. My sculptural works are created using a range of techniques, such as quilting, fabric dyeing, eco-printing and digital photography, and incorporate reoccurring shapes and textures found in local industrial landscapes. Employing juxtaposing materials and imagery, I aim to examine the contrast between permanence and impermanence and explore the complex relationship between humans and non-human nature.
