    My work involves creating large-scale abstract mixed-media drawing installations, based on observations of both the natural and built environments.

     

    Combining experimental techniques with a range of traditional drawing media on paper, I incorporate a variety of methods to manipulate my images. Cuts, tears and adhered seams are necessary structural features of my drawings, revealing the production process of the work and adding a distinctive quality of mark.

     

    The process of making and unmaking, collagen and reconstructing sections of the composition disrupts the representational elements of the drawing, flattening and adding a sense of ambiguity to the images. The contrasting readings of space thus created and the increasingly large scale of the drawings have become central features of my work.
