Using themes such as objectification, and the psychological, I explore what makes us human. Influenced by the writings of Julia Kristeva, I look into the darker side of our minds. My work deals with the self, and the effect that living in our current society has on us as individuals and social groups. I am fascinated by the physical aspect of this, and respond to issues such as size zero culture, and what is typically considered to be 'ugly'. I favour abject materials, including wax and latex, and often experiment with less traditional mediums. Understanding the sensitive nature of these themes, I often add humour to my work to help my audience engage on a visual and emotional level. The often performative creative process reflects in my work and adds elements of interaction.
