Born in Cyprus, to Maltese/French Parents and educated in England, I am presently based in Scotland. My perceptions and relationship to both inner and outer landscapes I believe, are attributed to this sense of not belonging to – and yet a belonging everywhere. It contributes to an outward looking and broader approach to our global community and so to inspiration and connection.
Initially a painter, the creative process has led me to where I am presently merging drawing/painting into sculptural forms, and I am excited to see where this process will also lead me. Creativity and all it’s attributes are important to me and so with this in mind I am also an open studio tutor for Glasgow School of Art and a creative practitioner for Better Lives- a UK based autism network.
Based in Scotland, the U.K, My creative practice is process led. Currently I am exploring drawing in its broadest sense, creating sculptural drawings. Using Salvaged, Recycled materials and found objects such as Plastics, Paper, Fabric, Iron and wood. Installations depend on location, space and environment and are created or re-invented according to that space. Both a reaction to or a statement of, my installations and sculptural drawings engage via dialogue and conversation on very current global and societal issues. Relationship, Conversation, Connection, Community, Placement, Humanity and current global issues are my focused interest. They are subtle and challenging, a contrast between the fragility and strength. They have been referred to as both monumental and fragile at the same time. My Creative practice looks to what it is to be human, the fragility, the strength and is demonstrated in the materials I use. However salvaged or found though, the aesthetics, the craft that is art is vital to me , allowing me to continually move my practice forward.
