Hello!

I draw, make marks, write and paint. My work begins with layering and texture - layering adds to the history of making. I'm interested in weathered objects and surfaces - found materials worn smooth by the tides, fragments of past lives within broken pieces of pottery. Memories of places. Colours created by nature, over time. My current subjects are neon-lit floral arrangements reflecting seminal events of 2020. Other works contain simple stitchwork on both paper and fabric to highlight colour and movement. 

Sometimes I add electroconductive materials which enable artwork to come to life through touch and sound. It is also a process that's conducive to building community and sharing with others. We work towards a larger piece which is embedded with stories and music. I choose materials that can make unexpected marks. I use dip pens with ink over collaged surfaces made with recycled and found materials.
