Part of events on ArtRabbit in: London

I am an artist living and working in London. My work has always been inspired by the natural world. I explore, I collect and I give life back to objects that have been disregarded and lost. My work celebrates material, both natural and manmade, and I enjoy displaying my work in a way which make it feel understandable and accessible. I am interested in art within a domestic setting and why people choose to fill their homes with memorabilia, collections, and souvenirs. I create curiosity cabinets which aim to reconnect people with the past, with place, with nature, much of which they may have lost sight of in a time of rapid change and disposability. For my degree show in 2017 I collaborated with archaeologists who helped me explore and realise this process, using objects I found in the River Kelvin in Glasgow. As part of my current masters and on-going practice I am examining the psychology of collecting, why we collect and whether it may have been the first form of art; whether collecting is an essential and intrinsic part of the human experience in that it allows the individual to express their identity through the selection and presentation of objects. My work aims to celebrate, inform, and through play, discover, an understanding of the world around me.
