My work explores the significance of place in our lives by addressing the power of landscape to evoke memory, emotion and anthropomorphic physicality. Some of the works celebrate the poetic; others question our increasingly dysfunctional relationship to the natural world. Nature is perceived as a mirror- not only of our own physical form, but also of our relationship with our inner selves. Underlying all of the work is an autobiographical search for personal meaning.

My practice combines the recording of simple interventions in the landscape with a more traditional sculptural approach of making objects in the studio. While one satisfies a need to understand the world in intellectual terms the other satisfies the need to do so viscerally.
