  • Biography
My graduate show focuses on storytelling. Themes of women's work, mental cleaning, obsessive cleaning and dangerous women and the chemicals they use all feed into my practice. I work with a large range of mixed media to create this show from soap casting, oil painting, sewing, film, print, sound and smell.
