My practice mainly concerns installation art, frequently using crochet and wool as a drawing material or sculptural medium. Challenging the association of crochet with domestic craft and introducing this into a contemporary art environment. Other areas of interest include sourcing found materials, traces people leave behind, questioning their owner’s identity. Documenting, cataloguing, rearranging, Re-piecing the unseen, unnoticed, ordinary, disregarded or lost.   Email chain letters and the decline of the hand written and communication, have been subjects of recent sculptures. Peculiar, ironic, language or imagery found in everyday life from buildings, advertising, media have also influenced past and recent work. I am currently researching the routine life of the visually impaired, managing daily tasks and memory,
