Walking is an important aspect of my practice and often forms the initial framework for my research where I engage with the physicality of specific places. My travels through the landscape are embodied in artist’s books. I have a curiosity about particular environments; ancient sites and how they sit in parallel with contemporary landscape. Breaking away from conventional ways of looking at the landscape, my inquiry aims to look towards that which is unseen, exploring texture and mark-making to represent the multiple cultural overlays present in a given environment.
I am interested in presenting the complex ways that people throughout history have consciously and unconsciously engaged in practices organising space and altering the land for a variety of purposes be these economic, socio-political or spiritual. A passion for the full spectrum of nature coupled with an interest in environmental concerns form an open-ended line of inquiry and is the focus for much of this work.
