My work is about change in the environment and examining this through the process of making art. I am interested in place and time, specifically making work in relation to a particular site. I am currently fascinated by trees and the time span of their lives in relation to human history and investigating the heritage of gardening in South London, the plant collectors and gardeners that lived here.
My work for the last year has been documenting and collecting plant material from my local Burgess Park – the route from home to studio – and using this to make work connected with plants and seasonal change and due to a studio move to Deptford is now changing to work about Deptford trees and parks.
I have been making a series of drawings of plants to document a year of change in the park and to create a visual alphabet of shapes and colours.
I have also been making small sculptures using plant material sourced from the park such as ‘Dogwood red and green’.
I have been making hand made paper from plants in the shape of leaves – some containing tree seeds, Alder and Paper Birch – for the exhibition Way Marking at SteelRooms Gallery, Brigg. For this exhibition I made the works ‘Blowing in the Wind’, ’27 Leaves’ and ‘Tree Bags’.
