artist's statement

I am fascinated by the way we interact with our environments, and how they impact upon us. My practice is focused, through a variety of media, processes and outcomes on addressing relationship to places and events. Historical, social and natural considerations are often initial research components for me, with my response developing through a process of research, consultation and documentation.

Underlying these themes is a fascination with the collective memory of places - how events have shaped a location and how the memory of a place continues to impact upon the inhabitants and users. I enjoy highlighting relationships between disparate elements of a place. For instance by setting small, overlooked physical details within a wider historical framework.

The way in which I work lends itself well to the sharing of knowledge; I enjoy helping people engage with their environment to bring about a shift in perception (however subtle) and enabling them to look afresh at their surroundings.
