"My work reflects on the elusive nature of memory and its landscape of fragmentation, absence and impermanence. Whether my work is purely abstract, or references family photographs or is figurative, I create a frame within which the work becomes ordered or in some way connected. I am building and rebuilding fragments to see what I can’t or don’t see, to know what I don’t know and to ground something forgotten or fragile. I work only on paper. Paper is very human like it appears delicate, however it can be torn and bent, is strong, can be made wet, will re-constitute, it survives the handling. It is vulnerable yet resistant. And paper has memory. A tear or dent will remain and becomes a reminder, a trace, a mark."
