b. 1991 Nottingham, UK
Demi creates sculptural works on paper as she explores drawing and mark making using pinpricking, sewing and painting. She uses her experience of landscape as her starting point, inspired by maps and aerial imagery focusing on stark areas such as mountains, canyons and deserts and translating them into her own minimal abstract language. The work intentionally slows the creative process down to inspire a meditative practice as the visual information is paired down to a minimum, hinting at features found within nature.
