Bio/Resume

In my most recent works, I've continued my investigation of architecture and landscape as spaces of narrative uncertainty. The work springs from an abiding interest in architecture and design, and how these disciplines act as repositories and representations of aspirations, motivations, needs and necessities. Representations of landscape and architecture can reveal ways in which the places that we inhabit are imagined, both literally and figuratively. In my exploration of these themes, I shift from larger sculptural work, with interactive and playful qualities, to painting, drawing, and printmaking. With each shift in media and technique the modes of working become analogous; each informing the other. Each of these pieces delves into the interplay between images of constructed space, absence, and imagined narrative.
