Work               Information

For some years I have been exploring the animal world, producing narrative installations, drawings and prints. My interest is in weaving multi-layered contexts into specific settings. Materials used to fabricate sculpture for this work, often salvaged from domestic life, have a recognizable history recycled to provide us with unexpected connections to the wilder world. My most recent series based on research in Mexico explores different formats as I continue interpreting figurative landscapes and narratives through memory.
