I investigate the palimpsest of place and how evidence of former use and occupation resonates through time. I’m drawn to everyday locations - hedgebound fields, old tracks, abandoned buildings - curious about their histories. What links this place to its past, what evidence is there? Do things happen now that reference earlier actions? Making art is my way of understanding this world and why things are as they are. It's a way of asking questions and exploring answers that can remain flexible and open to change.
