My work is based on the diverse and untidy traces that are often the remains of our urban and natural environment.
Much of my work is an on-going investigation from information in my sketchbooks, notations and observations of my own environment. The materials of collage and mixed media allow me to develop a layering of what dwells beneath our daily lives.
