My work reflects on my life experiences and my deep feeling of being connected with nature.
I use the word nature in the broadest sense. This includes the environment, specific natural locations, animals and the human body. In German this is called NATURVERBUNDENHEIT.
My work is informed by issues such as environmental concerns, gender and feminism and re-connecting with what is important in life – all of which stem from my feeling of Naturverbundenheit.
My preferred media are sculpture, moving image, photography, and performance. These often overlap. For example, I might use a sculptural piece in a performance and then document this through video.
Quite often my work suggests a narrative. I draw on the human affinity to rituals, sometimes using symbolism from the mythical of different cultures. I am also inspired by organic forms in the natural world.

“unflinching photographs” – The Scotsman (2015)
“…a Viking ship made by Bibo. The ship looks as if it is bound for Valhalla, but the little box nestling in its hull contains – not ashes – but sand from their favourite shore. It’s a quiet, but potent reminder of what could have been; but wasn’t.” – The Scotsman (2015)
“optimistic, personal, educational and aesthetically wonderful” Aberdeen Voice (2015)
