Artist’s statement

My work is an exploration of the individual’s sense of inner conflict and turmoil, and the mechanisms we use to maintain order in the midst of external chaos, itself often a product of our own decisions and judgements.

I became intrigued by the myriad of textural effects afforded by the mediums of printing and fibres, and relied heavily on my own symbolism and the subjective frame to convey a glimpse of what became a very personal battle against the often restrictive, chaotic emotional landscape of HSC existence.
