ARTIST STATEMENT
SCARF ORIGINAL MEDIUM.jpeg

My work as a disabled and neurodivergent artist is deeply rooted in my own lived experiences. I find inspiration in my journey and use it to motivate my artistic practice. One significant part of my artistic mission is to explore the concept of Resting, Slowing Down, and Doing Less as a powerful means to combat climate change. By questioning the societal norms of consumerism and hyper productivity, I aim to offer Rest as an antidote to these destructive practices. I also actively consider themes of wellbeing and self-care within my practice, specifically focusing on how artists with disabilities and caring responsibilities can maintain thriving and exciting art practices.

In my work, public engagement, collaboration, and playfulness hold pivotal roles. I believe in the power of co-creation and incorporate diverse processes and mediums to create immersive and interactive artworks. Additionally, I am committed to using found and recycled materials, promoting sustainability through artistic expression.

My practice delves into ideas of Inclusion, Access, and Rest, challenging the capitalist constructs of Grind Culture and Over Working. Through acts of gentle protest and creative activism, I seek to test and transcend perceived boundaries of art. I find inspiration not only within the art world but also in non-art disciplines such as mindfulness and somatic experiences.
