Projects

My art practice is research-based and crosses various mediums,  I am interested in the space where art and health intersect, exploring the sociology and anthropology of food.

My work usually takes a documentarian approach combining photography, film, sound and installation practices.  I draw on themes around phenomenology, health, culture, identity, feminist issues, spirituality and humans’ place in society and their natural environment.
