“Status what is it? A magic fiction dependant on time, place, people, dress – disarrange one domino and everything crashes”
(Binder, 1986)

My concerns are with human aspiration and how this is reflected in our behaviour, personal habits and the daily rituals of our lives. I observe people, their possessions, the ways they dress and the “tribes” they belong to - paying particular attention to moments of self absorption.

My work consists of drawings, photographs, prints, objects or installation which I select, refine and distil to produce work with a quiet and sophisticated aesthetic.

I acknowledge the influence of Mona Hartoum, Mary Kelly and Willie Cole who all use the vocabulary of everyday, domestic materials and appropriated domestic objects to comment on political and social issues.
