Studying physical, human and historical geography was my original gateway to exploring the natural environment, timelines and process. Drawing field sketches, alongside learning how the underpinnings of the land were formed, provided an intense connection to place. Here the natural and visual art worlds became inextricably linked for me.

I am interested in materials and surfaces altered by exposure and fragmentation, their accumulated layers of existence, in turn, mirror the human condition.

My work lies somewhere between drawing and sculpture. Drawing is at the heart of my practice. I use it as an activity to distill and articulate my discoveries and often take photographs and short pieces of video as a record, connection to source or to initiate further developments. I am interested in the way photographs can isolate form, elevating something that might be overlooked and bringing changes to the context of viewing.
