I currently paint, draw and etch. I work with steel and copper plates as a sympathetic surface for oil painting. I make my work with the intention of leaving it out in the open countryside where I walk. My practice looks at places of shelter and refuge, and I try to reflect particular spiritual and architectural adaptations of humans and animals.
