Biography

Responding to sites of architectural interest, I seek out hidden, forgotten or reimagined aspects through drawing.  I am interested in communicating a sense of the felt experience of internal spaces, alive with human traces, narratives and histories.  I examine the multifaceted, shifting nature of spaces, inspired by experience, memory and imagination, enriching my enquiry with participatory working and wider contextual research.  

Currently focusing on the natural rhythms of light, I am interested in what they may reveal about a space.  Working with abstract forms, I engage in a repetitive, rhythmic action of drawing and examine how paper surfaces and marks interact with light, often working with video.  

Recent works comprise installations that incorporate drawings, light, video and digital prints.
