Statement

My practice is rooted in painting, drawing and printmaking. I am interested in imagery that combines the poetic and the everyday. My work can be diaristic; recording faces, objects, gestures and characters I encounter. More recently, my work has drawn from an observation and documentation of figures engaged in simple, but oddly performative activity; knitting in the street, mending powerlines while standing in a tree, watching the sunset upside-down.
