My work is conceptually engaged with elements of sound and sensory experience, concerning the bodily experience of sound. Using a phenomenological approach my work explores cultures of sound utilising multidisciplinary modes of making. The sound made and resonance of materials is important, as well as its ability to manipulate and create organic sound. I work predominantly in sculpture, mould making and textiles.

I have been experimenting with sound carrying motifs in my work, notably echoes and methods of trapping air through working with convex shapes in sculpture. Textile work has been another method of working with sound as an element of dulling and softening noise with fibre materials. Scale is an important element of my work as it invites feelings in the body to encounter a large scale object in a space.
