I am an inter-disciplinary artist working across painting and performance. I create expansive, sensual environments to consider complex issues such as female sexuality, ecopolitics and the natural world and our interconnectedness to the non human. In this ungraspable moment, when our world is more uncertain than ever, I try to imagine future environments where animals and humans exist with no hierarchies and relate to each other through a sensual perception rather than with narratives of domination and control. I frame sensuality as being the connective tissue that binds all things.
