Artist statement :
As a studio ceramist my work is sculptural & functional , generally with a heavy influence of Singaporean & Faroese folk art, landscapes, cultural references as well as personal experience.
My current body of work explores interpersonal relationships in relation to divergent manifestations of intersectionality, displacement, social & emotional isolation and sense of identity and mundanity in modern Life.
It is my desire to reinstate the value of the handmade object and to see this object as a metaphor for the importance of the individual and the value of shared human experience. This effort forms a bridge between the traditions of the past and concerns of the present to create a springboard for future work.
