Approved: 12.02.2011

My practice is driven by interests in drawing, printmaking and the experience of landscape and memory. With collected drawing, images and snapshots as my subject matter I use repetitive mark making; composites; digital tools and the distinctive qualities of printmaking to make distilled or embellished versions of landscape. Software expands my range of mark making and etching and screen-print are processes with which I can easily integrate the digital and hand-made. I aim to allude to the fleeting visual moments experienced during journeys and holidays and how they might be recomposed by memory into something more remarkable or dreamlike.
