We connect to the past when working with natural material; it contains social, historical and ancestral resonance. Copper, coined as the blood of the earth, and clay, known as the body of earth together make up merely a representation of our existence in form, sculpture and installation. Each work stands as a display of life and experience; and that of our ancestors. The communion of being both tangible and intangible I constantly revisit in my art practice. The link between our past and our present I journey. Wrapping, sewing, locking and conjoining are traditional practices; historically linked to "women's work" that speaks of connectivity and relationship. I use this method most often in respect and as a communicative tool. The weight of living is inescapable. The scabbed tear is a sentiment of this reality.

Engage in each work in the same as a conversation. Find power in a common object, as we too are formed to be that.
