In 2007 I developed epilepsy while travelling overseas in Europe and India. My complex partial seizures disrupt both my immediate experiences and my memory (short and long term).

I am interested in the importance of memory and a coherent personal narrative in forming identity. My artwork shows the erasure and rebuilding of forms in my brain as a metaphor for the unfixed and transformational nature of personal identity.
