Visual Expeditions

Everyday is an opportunity to enjoy visual delights and curiosities.

During my daily walks, deconstruction sites and structural conundrums often catch my eye.

Intrigued by the transformation of space as walls disappear and roofs are opened to the sky, a sheltered enclosure becomes exposed and vulnerable.

I am drawn to these places.

I set up a makeshift work place right on site and chronicle the structures and spaces as they change. Incorporating remnants of wallpaper, linoleum and wood siding with pastels and paint, the foundations of the paintings are laid.

Then I carry the work back to my studio and let memory and material give new life to these old places.
