Using a chainsaw and power tools, her wood sculpture focuses on shapes and forms inspired by nature; seeds, pods, leaves and other natural plant formations, creating fluid and curvaceous abstract pieces. Her sculpture projects have included working with local communities creating pieces inspired by participants work and delivering projects from inception.
