Steph is an interdisciplinary artist exploring our relationships to local landscapes and wider environmental issues. Her practice spans sculpture, site specific installation and participatory projects. 

 

An engagement with materials is central to her work; she is fascinated by materials and their intrinsic qualities, and how they are powerful conduits of meaning, carrying personal, political and ecological significance.

 

Her practice explores how working by hand with vernacular materials can allow intimate connections to form between the human body and the unique ecology and spirit of a place, deepening a sense of belonging and enabling a more embodied understanding.

 

Steph is research-led and works closely with scientists, researchers, sites and communities, allowing the collaborative process to shape the outcome of each project.

She is also a member of Garden Folk, a collective of artists, growers, chefs and activists working with the land to create seasonal, celebratory events, rituals and performances.
