Responding to the felt experience of architecture, I explore hidden, forgotten or reimagined aspects through drawing. I am interested in our perception of how spaces feel and drawing’s intuitive capacity to coax aspects of this experience to light. Recent enquiry has been focused on architectural materials, questioning what sensory experiences of drawing and architecture may reveal about a place or time. Working employs a repetitive drawing approach through the duality of touch in both reception and expression.
Recent works on paper comprise drawings and prints inspired by architectural materials. Recent installations incorporate drawings that are activated by light in the space.
