Personal photography and my early background in architecture provide reference points for my work which explores the relationships between the surface and the 3-dimensional. Painting is employed as an exploratory method calling into question the distinction between the recognised painting and the object and the illusion of the painted image. Spatial concerns are considered within the creation, composition and placement of all the works which utilise found wood, tiles, mirrors etc. The theme of the ordinary and everyday recurs throughout the work, from the use of common found materials, to the depiction of everyday family scenes or simple hospitality.
