My primary drive as an artist is to try to make sense of my place in the world. Through the inconsistencies of memory, I hope to access a collective experience of place.
I do not seek to illustrate a particular place in point of fact however, but rather develop and ultimately ‘make‘ a version of the world. Memory appears to retain only what is personally important, and the inevitable mix of my own history fills in the gaps. Only that which remains is important – the extraneous and fleeting are not registered. The final image is therefore a remnant, the world distilled. This remembered world inevitably fades and decays, and I catch all I can before there is nothing left. This is my starting point.

Each image is something already gone - it is the seeing of things for the last time.
