I use photography and video constructing and making work out in the landscape, using practice based methods of research, walking journeys, notetaking, exploring historic references, relevant to our past and present today.
I completed a site residency in 2018 on The South Downs of Sussex, researching the history of a woman discovered from ancient time, the photographic works share stories from the past, our universal connections, presentations in the landscape. This project became part of an Arts Council Funded, research & development touring exhibition: Constructed Geographies touring across Sussex, DC1 Collective Eastbourne, Onca Brighton, Hastings Arts Forum, Hastings, and Colonnade House, Worthing to 4th May 2019.
