(Parking Day, Wellington 2016)
My art practice is hugely informed by my many years of working as an image researcher in both the UK and NZ. This job requires a keen and discerning eye, an excellent visual memory and a whip-smart ability to accurately represent words and ideas with pictures. During my making process, I use materials as a visual vocabulary. Often the resulting piece reveals its meaning at the end; less frequently, an idea leads to the choice of material I employ. In both cases, materiality leads the way and for me, the process of making is as important as the end result.
