Primarily a painter, I also construct pieces using textiles, paper and found objects.
Much of what I do has evolved out of my interest in both historic and genealogical research. This means that I may revisit a series of works over a number of years as research progresses.
Layering, distortion and erasure have all come to play a key part in my practice, referencing the often fugitive nature of both memory and historic narrative. Delving into the past is frequently concerned with revealing aspects of the misplaced, the intangible, the forgotten or perhaps the deliberately erased.
