The focus of my work is in reproduced imagery of landscapes and I am currently making work in response to images of ruins within the landscape.

Recently, I have developed the themes of fragility and ruin in my work by working with very delicate gold craft paper and making a series of bell jars and intricate mural work. For me, my work encapsulates the contradictory exterior/interior relationship we have with landscape with references to specimen collection and gentlemen’s libraries where nature is collected, classified, and observed in a polite manner.
