Working with specialist papers as her primary medium, her work examines temporality, the environment, our place within it and the traces we leave behind. Large scale, organic, installations alter the spaces they inhabit and appear to grow both naturally and unexpectedly through our build environment. These intricate paper constructions compel us to re-examine our relationship with materiality, nature, growth and decay.
