" I look for evidence of nature I can hold in my hand. It can be found in my suburban garden or on my travels to the sea or the countryside. I look for the overlooked, the fragile and the broken. I become a witness to events and objects I can't always fully understand. My drawings, prints and collections of things help investigate this environment and form a bridge between my urban living and the natural world around me."
I look for bones, plants, insects and birds. I like residues and husks of animals, plants or minerals that have survived long enough for me to find and examine. I celebrate the fragile, the forgotten, the broken and the beautiful.
