MA Fine Art
My work is a response to my lived experience with a chronic illness. My practice acts as personal therapy; helping me to deal with my condition as it changes and develops. It also allows me to share my private encounters with health care practitioners and highlight the more humorous aspects of my experiences. In my varied and diverse approaches to making art—such as animatronics, interactive sculpture and installation—my intention is to catalyse discussion about the wider social and cultural issues surrounding disability and illnesses. In turn contributing to the normalising of disabled bodies within our society and the breaking down of stigmas and bias.
