I produce intricately detailed pen & ink drawings, as well as memory boxes – curated collections of found & treasured objects.
The drawings comprise landscapes, cityscapes, individual buildings and animals. I find the beauty, detail and patterns of familiar settings and objects, and reinterpret these into my artwork. The pen and ink drawings represent familiar places in unique ways. The landscape and city drawings are built up with often repetitive line work to create an unusual and rich tapestry of patterns.
I collaborate closely with people to discover meaningful objects from their life. I then alter, assemble & craft the objects into bespoke artwork. Each object tells its own story, yet together they take on a symbolic whole that is representative of that person, special place or moment in their life. My work Mamgu’s Boxes was featured on Radio 4 in May 2020.
