My practice is performative and engages with/in diverse locations of/in culture. It is a practice that honours the self, the other(s) and the knowledge that is co-created. It is a practice that engages the self as a whole, a conversation among multiples -- diverse perspectives, experiences, modes of thinking and expressing. My study is in flux, in motion, as a place of multiple, interdisciplinary arts practices. I work from the specific, the personal, the local to explore structures, concepts, divergences and connections.
