"My work draws strongly on the landscape, focusing on my home, family and myself in conversation with the natural world. I am often attracted to the objects and artifacts that we surround ourselves with, as memory-laden emblems of our history and signifiers of time passing. I look to understand how a sense of place can be embedded with personal history."
