My work includes live performance, site specific and durational pieces, working in mediums as diverse as glass and gold as well as the human body, I have made work for cities and rural spaces, for galleries, theatres, churches, on desolate uninhabited islands and for audiences of 100 and of 1. I am interested in human communication, control and power and the effect of outside influences and experiences on our actions and behaviour. I bring the passion of an artist to use art to re-imagine the ordinary and to take my audience to places of the imagination and the extraordinary.

In my practice, consistent concerns are the voice, communication structures, control and hierarchy, the extraordinary. Ritual (using the modern interpretation of repetitive action) is a one key element and some durational performances exploit this factor. Site is a major influence on my work and working with and within an audience is also important leading to interactive work that is constructed to engage the public on an emotional and physical platform.
