Bio: The works I create use patterns, materials and subjects found in everyday occurrences, sometimes in mundane locations. I then reinterpret the subject matter into an unfamiliar landscape or environment. These are often formed using basic geometry and perspective, which is skewed to design an imagined space.

My latest work looks at the definition and semiotics of space. In particular the nature of large scale facades and structures. This work not only investigates space through representation on a flat surface, but how we see a space through the use of perspective and basic form. The structures are incomplete or contain empty space so they are not anchored within the traditional notion of a landscape, the lack of figures allow the spaces to be interpreted at any given scale.
