This installation project examines our dual relationship with place, which is embedded deeply in our experiences, and the process of searching for identity within that framework. At the same time, human beings spending time in a location also inevitably changes the place itself; each receives an impression of the other. Much how water subtly changes […]
In this section recent work from the past two years is posted, including a few monotypes, mezzotint, some etchings, and digital printmaking depending on the work.
Time passing generates the history and identity associated with place. My mark-making process in these monotype prints is intended to make the work, like landscape, feel as though it has existed for millennia. Drops from pools of inky water, and traces of where it evaporated remain, leaving patterning and reticulation. These remnants fascinate me. They […]
My recent work addresses how memory and a connection to spatial places contribute to identity through use of photographic imagery taken in and around St. John’s and other places. We remember place, and can connect to the notion of location deeply. Experiences within such spaces subtly shape our personal history. Spatial memory is one of […]

I had a lot of fun over the month I was there seeing the surrounding area. I was able to see icebergs close up, and it was fascinating to see them […]
This is a series of prints investigating intimate spaces, which imply but do not necessarily show a figurative presence. The abstraction of the images, hovering between traditional landscape and something else, portrays traces of relationships and deeper personal bonds between human beings. This body of work also includes a collaborative artist book project, with text […]
These works look at individual memory in relation to a larger network of individuals, of social memory over time. The vessels depicted in the work carry information and encoded textual meaning; each vessel can be described as the embodiment of one identity, carrying with it memories, codified behaviours, expectations and cultural meaning within a fragile […]
Our understanding of what constitutes ‘place’ is coloured by emotion, and the memories attached to it. The structures in which we live and work, and in which our experiences and feelings take place become imbed in our psyches, and establish a lasting impression. For this reason, a building, or a place, the people who were […]
