STATEMENT

For some years she has been concerned about the effect ‘progress’ has had on the natural world and it was during the very reflective period of the first Covid lockdown that she started year round sea swimming and became connected to nature in an entirely different way.

The therapeutic energy and flow of the sea salved many of her anxieties and much of the work reflects this feeling of calm effortless flow, over which geotracking maps of her daily swims collide with linear spirals reminiscent of the intrusive circular thoughts which still follow her. Observations of pollution intrude in the form of concrete and shapes of floating detritus. The feelings of calm and excitement have been expressed alongside the edginess and anxiety as she strives to find a balance between the natural and the man-made world
