Location: London

My practice investigates the notion of remnants, fragments and the crumpled remains of the day that accumulate in pockets, rooms, streets and the studio. The processes of accumulation, transformation and the enigma of objects also concerns me. I often initiate 'chance operations' such as automatic drawing and collage- making installations of drawings, photographs and found materials.
