My work is about the landscape and how we fit within it. I use various mediums, whether time-based and non-permanent, or tangible and lasting. I am interested in ideas around wilderness and the self, the continuous shifts that occur between the physical and conceptual world. In our post-modern globalised societies there are new estrangements and affinities between the human and nonhuman. To make Landscape relevant today I want to move away from seeing my environment as a simply delineated and romanticised Place and more towards it being a complex structure for experience: a cognitive landscape; a sensuous and animate world.


" As the crickets' soft hum  /  is to us  /  so are we to the trees  /  as are they  /  to the rocks and the hills. "
