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

Currently I am exploring surface and what lies beneath, influenced by both urban and rural landscapes, where I find marks both natural and man-made that are a source of inspiration with marks left behind or concealed. I am influenced by the changing environment and the idea that the past can never be totally erased. Process is important, I use found fragments, objects, sketches, and experimental work to assemble a collage. 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.
