Artist statement

I have used palm prints, floor-plans, genealogy trees and dressmaking patterns, to explore issues of personal histories, sites of memories and the mapping of identity.

I have made a series of paintings based on the London map. Removing and retaining certain references, in order to create an imagined geography, where current knowledge is absent or disorientating, but also alluding to the possibility of either a new landscape, or a return to a forgotten past.

I am currently working on paintings, based on the architectural spaces of London, often near home, in overlooked places. With the inclusion of elements from maps, to create layers of different perspectives.

I am influenced by the work of Ellen Gallagher, Prunella Clough, Agnes Martin, and Kathy Prendergast's "City Drawings".
