My studio practice explores the boundaries between archaeology, architecture and art. I begin with a site or subject and using methods essential to each discipline I take on an investigative approach. (Fieldwork; artifact and material collection; archival research; establishing and recording communications; technical drafting, note taking and painting). These notes and collections are often collaged directly onto the work becoming an important part of the painting process. For my larger paintings and projects, I do not plan an outcome in advance. The direction of my work is never certain, continuously evolving as new information is discovered. This results in many layers of information, textures and details through which the final composition emerges.
