Using everyday materials and spaces, I explore gaps and overlaps between drawing and photography, embroidery and drawing, spatial and embroidery; all the while questioning my understanding of each.

Transparency allows everything to be seen, inside and out, without obscuring the subject itself. Much of my work exists only for a short time. It is meant to be neither permanent nor perfect. What goes in, what stays out? Partly, it’s an inability to choose. So, I give everything equal weight. If it’s there, it’s in…. whether it is beautiful cornicing or dirty marks on the wall. Big concerns play their part, but my work is informed by everything really… love, eternity, a half-forgotten dream, a whisper.
