I embrace the abandoned, salvage the past, I seek the cast-out and forgotten. I assemble fragments and weave together remnants. I re-purpose discarded and found objects. My goal is to provide a space for the viewer that is intimate and mysterious - to create a beautiful landscape that explores a fragile interiority shadowed by grief and longing - To map the location in the mind where memory resides as elusive traces of what was.
