"I love the thinking behind the work. My work is all about mixing the representational with conceptual and physical materials. I enjoy combining materials and ideas. From this Residency, I'm looking to create clearer goals and direction for my art practice."

"Creating is so engrained as a core aspect of my being, I wouldn’t know what to do with myself without it. I’m passionate about waste reduction especially with textiles. From this Residency, I'm hoping to develop more of a work routine so I can balance my practice with other aspects of my life."
