Biography

I am interested in seeking out the hidden, forgotten or reimagined aspects of architectural sites, alive with human traces, narratives and histories. Inspired by experience, memory and imagination, I enrich my enquiry with wider contextual research.  My working investigates the sensory experience of architectural sites, questioning what it may reveal about a place and the people connected with it. 

Recent enquiry has been exploring the potential of drawing to uncover and convey felt aspects of a space. Working employs a rhythmic, repetitive approach, examining how translucent paper surfaces and marks interact with light, often working with video.  

Recent works comprise drawings and installations of drawings on translucent papers that are activated by light.
