“My practice has developed during my time at Central Saint Martins to explore the way that the familiarity of the house can be used to express discontentment with domesticity and the home environment; with focus on a woman’s role in the home. The home can be one of comfort, yet it can also serve as an alienating environment, containing elements of unease, which is something that has fascinated me for some time.”
