I try to make sense of the world through drawing. I take drawing to be more than a technique – rather a disposition – one that reveals our connections with the world of materials and with each other.
In places over extended periods I consider and support improvisation. Focusing on what we create to cope with our immediate problems. Be it in farms, refuges, caravan parks…. my practice builds deep connections and aims to celebrate the overlooked, but more powerfully than this – show that those who go unnoticed matter.
I use co-production and process-led approaches and work in collaboration with organisations and specialists including architects, researchers and curators. I am an experienced mentor and educator who challenges and disrupts thinking, supporting people to reflect on or activate change.
