The call for sustainability in a consumer-saturated world informs the heart of my work. I feel that it is an artist’s responsibility to be switched on to that which is obvious but pitilessly ignored. The use of second hand fabrics bears witness to an unknown body in the act of living and consuming.

My life of singing and performing provides a foundation for enquiries into the processes of making art. I am particularly inspired by the innovations of Russian Avant-garde theatre and dance and the costumes of Leigh Bowery and Nick Cave.
