With a background in visual theatre and puppetry and with a fascination for public spaces my work focuses on touch. The physical empathy that object manipulation brings, the excitement of physical games and the absurdness of creating images and installations in public spaces.  Breathing life into inanimate objects, creating visual invitations to play and move and to connect story to image to space.
