I am a visual artist whose work responds to place and context through sensory engagement with local or relevant physical materials. At the moment I'm particularly interested in exploring our emotional relationships with raw materials. Trained in Theatre Design originally, my practice is multidisciplinary and often sculptural, engaging sensitively with or activating the site it inhabits. While the final works are usually sited, they are developed through haptic experimentation with raw materials in the studio, informed by deep contextual research. I collaborate regularly with a sound artist as the duo louie+jesse, and am a member of the South London-based collective POST Artists.
