My artwork stems from calming experiences of light and texture found in nature. These moments translate into artworks made in textile and wood, which fixate on colour and repetition. As well as visual art, these works can be interacted with through sound, touch and movement, bringing meditation to the audience.
By being sensory my work is accessible, becoming a tool for social inclusion. Experienced with the senses, it is not dependant on understanding a concept. It is understood by simply being. The work produced in my practice is based on research developing artworks with Neurodiverse audiences. This includes co-design, where disabled audiences are invited to test work, and artwork is refined from their responses from their responses. This results in artworks that do not assume they are engaging,
but know that they are. I am an advocate for inclusion; my practice challenges the exclusivity of art galleries.
In 2018 I graduated from The University of Gothenburg with an MFA in Applied Arts, specialising in Textiles. I have since developed a fully inclusive exhibition, Sinnerligt, as part of research project Sc:ense, and made public artwork for sensory centre Dalheimers Hus in Gothenburg. As well as artwork, I offer workshops and lectures in and about inclusive artwork.
