Artist Statement


I am a London based artist who works between jewellery and performance. I am interested in power that exists within objectification, in particular the dominance that can result from excessive submissiveness. I enjoy opposites, contradictions and playful experiments on more serious underlying concepts and topics. 

My practice is also driven by the value of labour, how it is measured and changeable, always in flux. I find the way the meaning or value of an object can disappear or alter depending on who is viewing it compelling, and use my practice to experiment with this. 

In my work I aim to poke at and test the meaning of being ‘correct’ in our behaviour and interactions. I tend to use humour and subversion to work through my ideas, and am drawn to where humour can become awkward and tension can be felt.
