I work between the mediums of drawing and painting. I work in ongoing series often alongside each other, the still life paintings examine everyday objects and ornaments that sit side by side on shelves and ledges or in cabinets. The notes and drawings are the starting point for the paintings it then becomes the constant shifts that happen on the surface of the canvas between image and paint that becomes the area of investigation. A recent series of small scale paintings examine interior spaces and suggested narratives.
