Painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, video, textile & book arts, installation
In researching and documenting under-structure, abandoned buildings and marks left behind in the built environment, I find ‘beauty in decay, random marks, aerial perspectives, graffiti and weathered surfaces’. My artworks link to the contrasts of imperfections, found in the urban environment, highlighting, insignificant marks, weathered surfaces and cast-offs. I am influenced by, abandoned, underground and derelict spaces, vacant industrial sites, structures, old walls & graffiti.
