Sculpture and Environmental Art

Glasgow School of Art

My practice follows personal encounters with natural landscapes, and addresses the archiving of found terrestrial form. I frequently make work connected to the seaside town I grew up in, hoping to address personal enquiries related to place and orientation, as well as addressing wider curiosities of physical and imagines landscapes.

 Slip-casting in the medium of ceramics, I engage with the visceral handling of art medium as well as that of the terrestrial. My work is driven by field-based research, supported by anthropological and ecological theory - addressing a continued analysis of the relationship between body and landscape.
