MA work


My project is a comment on my own experience of catholicism through a cohesive composition and a visual reconstruction of the Stations of the Cross.

I use historical and spiritual referencing to ask the questions; What if Jesus was a woman? What if she had experienced all of the things Jesus is said to have experienced? What if that woman was living in contemporary society?

  • My art is about connecting with people. It is all-consuming and a constant search for secret codes and hidden meaning in the world that surrounds us. A range of materials are manipulated through this process of making which often result in multimedia installations that make use of the found object, embroidery, sculpture and drawing.
