I am an artist / educator based in South London.  I am currently most interested in how rules and rituals associated with our domestic surroundings might be being re-interpreted within the virtual world. The ambiguous spaces in my work depict the tension between sanctuary and territory; echo chambers and wider networks. I am interested in ‘in-between’ places, portals or thresholds and doorways, curtains and staves are common motifs in my current work.  They could  be read as both oppressive barriers and routes onwards forming an endless maze. 


These depictions  are also symbolic of a screen for one's own desires or of an escape.  I collage and use found objects and ephemera as a kind of support that juxtaposes the real with the imagined, making the familiar, alien.
