My approach to painting and drawing is conceptually-driven and process-based. Using systems and materials that are closely related to the content of the work, I have investigated a variety of natural phenomena underpinned with an awareness of the laws of physics and philosophical inquiries. By directly interacting with natural phenomena, I have mapped the wind, charted ocean tides, created textural topographical prints and three-dimensional landscape paintings, and recorded the activities of people in public places. Each series is connected to the other in some way in that something learned from one body of work led to the next. The art has taken the forms of works on paper, installations, paper constructions, and paintings on panel.
