This body of work explores written language and the relationships between digital and physical writing in the language of advertising, mail, intimate messages and the mundane.  I am interested in time, the marks and impressions left by people, the evidence of the human hand, wear and deterioration all creating a narrative of a particular time, evoking human touch and interaction.
Transient and fragile materials attract me and they feel very precious to me.
Currently I am enjoying building complex structures in wood which reveal one face to the world while holding secrets for the wearer.

On Your Wings

On Your Wings, a group show curated by Kate Alterio including work by Kathryn Yeats, Kate Alterio,  Jane Dodd, Rebecca Fargher and Lisa West.

Opening at Gallery 33 in November.

I'm interested in the heart representing love and the four chambers of the heart creating an architectural link
with the body.  My pieces also explore time based processes and the physical memory of spaces.
