My work is largely inspired by the urban landscape. I'm interested in the presence of rules and disruptive visual instructions; unending development that alters formerly familiar surroundings; the blurring, delicate boundaries between public and private space.

I enjoy moments where the strangeness of the built environment is revealed to us. My practice of drawing and writing is a means of paying attention to these moments, a way of engaging with them for longer.
