Artist statement

As an artist and mother my concerns for the environment and love for the arts intertwine. The role art plays in society to affect and create change over time is a driving force in my practice.

My modus operandi is to create playful experiences and experimental engagements around these issues. This triggers the subconscious mind on different levels, ideas are explored, new things are discovered and developed.

For some projects long-term change requires time and nurturing, so another stage of my process is to research and customise platforms or communal activities to foster and facilitate growth.

My practice entails collaborating with art institutions, collectives, art academies, galleries and public spaces by developing projects that surround social or ecological subjects.
