My area of interest is inspired by the environment of derelict dwellings and properties. They are a repository of history, stories and memories. Within and around these spaces one can find remnants of furniture, personal belongings, which offer an insight to the past. They have always intrigued me as both a presence and an absence can be felt, sometimes simultaneously, evoking thoughts and memories of my own childhood, siblings, parents and the home I grew up in. Fragmented moments of memory triggered by the impermanent state of objects and structures left behind. Memory and these environments are archaeological sites, we excavate to retrieve the full image or fragile memory, fading in and out of vison obscured by layers of other memories. My work represents these fragile memories and environments and the sense of presence or absence they evoke within us through incorporating and layering found building materials, reworking photo images, print, mixed materials,.

Artists which have continually travelled with me in this journey are Christian Boltanski, Robert Rauschenberg, Ansliem Kiefer, Louise Bourgeois, however I look to modern and contemporary artists in various fields such as print ,mixed media, photography, installation and sculpture, as my work is continually evolving.
