I have utilised a variety of art mediums and tools to create texture and elements, which can be touched and experienced in a tactile way. The methods used also highlight the soft and the rough, the approachable and the hightened. The elements encourage the viewer to become involved. They feel a sense of welcoming. But then, like a siren, after drawing them in, they may find that there are pointy edges and a sense of danger.
