    I work in the landscape, using particular environments as a metaphor for my own life journey. The passing of time, melancholy, fragility and process are all themes I touch on. My work is in turn filmic and otherworldly. I create series of drawings that allow me to immerse myself, creating my own very personal vision of an internal world.

    My starting point is the discovery of a place. I then build a relationship with it through sound, smell, atmosphere and light. The materials I use and mark making are unique to each project, therefore my research at the start of a project is usually painstaking.
