Forgotten and disregarded liminal spaces within landscape possess a feral wilderness of its own, an eerie otherness that lay outside our everyday attention that offers a post-human absence. Her practice responds to this and the rapid industrialisation within the UK, acknowledging the human and non-human agencies that are constantly fluctuating and coalescing into her own sense of place. Questioning the relationship between the endeavours of human activity within the landscape and the environment itself.

Drawing is fundamental to the work allowing the environmental and political subtleties of the subject to speak for itself, which then further extends into printmaking and

casting processes. Where the matrix offers a tangible response that leaves a trace or imprint from the original surface. The juxtaposition of positive and negative, absence and loss, and excess consumption are all matters that she continues to explore through reproductive materiality.
