Roots: Trauma

What 3 Words : Salt crystals on board.

How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

My work is ever changing and covers sociopolitical areas as well as more personal led work. I am currently driven by an interest in my personal heritage, place and belonging. Why do we palce so much importance on family history and heritage and what does it mean to be the end of a blood line ? Where are our 'Roots' ?

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

It means seeing the beauty and design of life in everything, everyday, every moment.

I am a multi disciplinary artist. Im curently looking at the subject of 'Roots' in all their forms and with all their meanings, literal and metaphorical.
