My work is created by meticulously cutting away paper by hand to leave behind delicate tableaus. It is often whimsical in nature with the inclusion of text to add a contemporary edge. I am drawn to paper as a medium for its simplicity and delicateness. I also appreciate watching this humble material come to life as I make each cut and the image is revealed. I have expanded my art’s practice to include other artistic avenues such as screen printing and installation.
Feronia - Her divinity breaths life into the land, healing and creating. She is spirited and giving but with an untamed nature. The wilderness has morphed with the feminine and we are at both her splendour and her mercy.
