Artist | York, UK


I make work in response to sites of architectural interest, exploring the sensory experience of architecture through drawing. I am interested in seeking out the hidden, forgotten or reimagined aspects of architectural sites, alive with human traces, narratives and histories. Inspired by experience, memory and imagination, I enrich my enquiry with wider contextual research.  

Recent enquiry has been focused on architectural materials, questioning what the sensory experience of drawing and architecture may reveal about a place. Working employs a rhythmic, repetitive approach, examining how translucent paper surfaces and marks interact with light, often working with video.  

Recent works comprise drawings and installations of drawings on translucent papers that are activated by light.
