My personal creative practice is focused on documentation of lived family and childhood experiences.
I often work on multiple long-term projects simultaneously, experimenting and following my curiousity and intuition until things start falling into place and a story starts taking shape. I use photography, archives, interviews and written word to explore the themes of identity and belonging; trauma and recovery; and the human connection with nature.
