My practice explores formative geography; one's relationship to location and how it is informed by personal events. I am interested in ambivalent relationships to space and considering how one verbalises a relationship of this manner. This is navigated using the village where I grew up as a reference. Personal anecdotes ground the narrative, through the use of anecdote walls and memory mapping of this space. A large emphasis is placed on context and narrative. I have a strong interest in the concept of a therapeutic art practice, intentionally availing of the therapeutic benefits of art through my work.
