The narrative of our lives is intimately tied to the places in which memories have been made. We accrue history through our surrounds and this is bound to our sense of identity and belonging.
My work examines the meaning of place. Recollections of an English childhood are entwined with the landscape of my new home in Australia. In forests, in woods or on riverbanks, history is told though branches, bark, leaves and undergrowth. Fragments bring memories of place and time. Each viewer brings their own story and makes a connection with their own memories.
