The “doll” is a form I am drawn to. It’s perfectly suited to explore concepts of play, fear, and beauty, all recurring themes in my work. Applying cultivated craft-based skills, I work intuitively, allowing characters to develop on their own, meticulously selecting the materials and colours. As a child, dolls filled much of my playtime and were instrumental in shaping my creativity. They will always be a part of my practice as an adult.
