Over the course of studio practice of the artist, she has used light to attract and locate the viewer, to provide an unexpected sense of discovery, and to address notions of conceptual and intellectual illumination. Her work explores the material and immaterial through the creation of a ‘drawing’ in light and shadow. Creating pieces that demonstrate the space where only light exists is as important as the object that defines it. Interested in how elements such as fired clay, glass and gold may be brought into conjunction with each other, she creates novel forms and experiences for the viewer to encounter. Without depicting a specific event, object or place, she aims to capture a sense of the sublime in order to hold the viewer’s attention and trigger their imagination.
