Statement

My work explores the margins of landscape.

I work in oil paints on paper pasted onto board, drawing into the wet paint with pencil. This technique results in a deconstructed, sketch-like finished work; the smooth surface, fragility and fluidity of the mark making on paper echoing the temporary and peripheral nature of the places I paint.
