My work references a range of influences from the topography and history of a place and its ever-changing environment; the shifting and increasingly polluted tides to the effect of man on the landscape, to man himself and the shared visual language of natural forms.
I work with an amalgam of different materials and artifacts relating to specific geographical locations. I use local maps, beeswax from nearby hives (literally a distillation of a place and a moment in time); pigments drawn from the mud, various colored earths, vegetation, rust and charcoal. I look for inspiration and materials in the landscape whether in the woods, abandoned places or building sites, using debris found along the strand lines of estuaries, riverbanks and marshes, from the source of a stream to where it meets the ocean through places both rural and urban. I collect sounds, images, data and objects. With these materials I create work that embodies a sense of place - totems of landscapes that resonate with me.
