I am an interdisciplinary artist who often combines printmaking with installation, performance, or event. Themes addressed can vary greatly, as I tend to make each new work in direct response to a specific space or context. Recent works show a preoccupation with animal behaviour, and can loosely be described as sandbox environments for confronting tricky human tendencies.
