What has interested me all my life is how we move through our lives, connected to place and time, and challenged by the constancy of change. I am drawn to historical, literary, and personal narratives and the way we are bound to the physical world emotionally, psychologically, and philosophically; our stories emerge from this world.

Drawing, painting or printmaking, paper is the vehicle for my expression; I like its fragility and resilience.
