much of the work is made in direct response to the everyday environment. often domestic spaces, household objects, ornaments and paraphernalia are depicted or referenced as a way of drawing attention to the overlooked areas of our everyday surroundings and experiences.
more recently surface textures have become important, as an attempt to make both an emotional and a physical connection to the subject matter, and to respond more directly to the location in which the work was made.

this work is predominantly time based, a vehicle to show the marks, trails and traces of weather, sea, sand and time.
the shore has been a source of inspiration and material for many years, particularly a small stretch of coastline in north cornwall. this âplace' has provided a haven and retreat. many hours have been spent drawing on the rocks, revealing the hidden and ignored beauty of the micro landscape.
the pebbles are three-dimensional prints, created in the virtual world from
original drawings done in cornwall. the resulting objects have an âuncanny' quality, not quite real pebbles but impossible to place in any other known context, a visual conundrum.
