I draw obsessively, learning to understand the world through delineating it. Often this is where a painting begins, announcing that it is done when it has presence and quiet.
Materiality affects my outdoor and public work as much as site, with some objects demanding attention, arrangement and animation. I assemble new possibilities from found materials, offering sculptures, surprises, prayer flags or picture frames in spaces and places where I can invite my audience to ramble and re-inhabit and reflect. Work is an ongoing process of collecting and repurposing objects, industrial and organic - in the belief that in order to walk more lightly on the earth we need to reexamine our ideas of material and waste.
