I am an artist who recently moved back to my home ground of Friesland (NL) after having spent 27 years living and working in the west of Ireland. In my artwork I use sculpture, photography, video, drawing and performance. The work might exhibit as installation art or be created as site-specific work. It always observes or critiques our relationship with the ‘natural’ world in which we exist, and is specifically connected to the relationships we have with non-human animals.
