    Artist Statement

    I make paintings, prints, artist books and videos. My work provides a meditative space where viewers can be drawn into their own journey.

    I'm interested in the ways we connect to our environment; how we belong. I find it important to have a physical experience of place in an increasingly dislocated world, and undertake long walks and expeditions, immersing myself in a paradoxical activity of being there, while passing through. Often investigating places which previous generations of my family have been connected to, I look for echoes of the past that resonate with present concerns.

    My work considers social, historical and geographical networks within the context of a particular place through a personal physical experience. Drawing out universal metaphors which resonate on a deeper level, I try to find an authentic, significant or enduring trace of a transient experience.
