I have been exploring both 2D and 3D outcomes using a variety of materials.

Currently I am exploring surface and what lies beneath, I am influenced by both urban and rural landscapes, marks both natural and man-made are a source of inspiration to me. I am also interested by the changing environment and the idea that the past can never be totally erased.

Process is important, I use found fragments of used paper often sewn together to create seams and texture, sketchbook work, objects, and unused drawings, paintings to create a collage onto board. Through concealing and revealing, and adding and subtracting, random and unexpected compositions can slowly reveal themselves. In addition I look for connections, texture and shape that begin to appear on the surface that may develop into an abstract work.
