Biography

Working with photography, sculpture and installation, the work examines the tension bewtween what is seen as opposed to what is understood. My work could be seen as a sculptural response to the photograph. 

The subject of the work is found traces inadvertantly left by people, usually in empty workplaces - the leftovers.  I never include figures in the work, preferring to suggest activity just outside of the frame. While I am interested in presence and absence, there is also an attention to the found spatial arrangements - found still lives.
