Artist Statement

I am an interdisciplinary artist, who primarily works in paint and film. The subject of my work varies, however my practice continues to explore resilience and forms of coping. My currentwork is exploring grief, rural communities and small family farms. This signifies a large change within my practice as it’s the first time I’ve worked through a personal experiencewithin my work.
