Our stuff, from well-worn living room chairs, to a kettle in the kitchen or a long beloved blanket, harbors emotional histories and intimate meanings that run far deeper than originally perceived. Both everyday items and precious possessions have stories tell; stories that are at once deeply personal, and yet capable of reflecting the experiences of entire communities. My current studio practice explores material cultural through a multitude of viewpoints, exposing the societal and psychological underpinnings of the physical objects with which we surround ourselves. These works explore the ways in which we, as 21st century humans, accumulate, use and ritualize objects. Using imaginative imagery, composition and form, I visually investigate constructs of home and the identities we construct through acts of place-making.
