“My current practice explores and responds to how beauty is presented through mass media. I am interested in the images in magazines, billboards and television which create desire for the ‘perfect body,’ and investigate what impact these images have on our imagination. Society continually bombards us with images of the perfect body, flawless sculptured idealistic and not found in reality yet we are more than happy to buy into this false ideal. My work includes using magazine advertisements Photoshop and recently I have begun focusing on using natural materials which have been cut and coloured which bare little resemblance to their original state therefore reflecting the harsh brittle and artificial nature of beauty.”

I am currently working towards my graduate exhibition, This is Who We Are. The last three years presented the opportunity to further develop my practice as an artist and this exhibition is the product of this journey.There will be a wide selection of works ranging from sculpture, drawing, video, painting, textile work and installation pieces.
