Cultural history and how we represent and inhabit architecture are fundamental to my work. Over the years I have looked at many subjects that reflect on art and design practices through the genres of still life and landscape as well as decor, abstraction and pattern. I am drawn to the expectations that underscore these preoccupations. Over thirty year ago I began to work with the architecture found in early Renaissance painting, from which I built life sized three-dimensional structures. This work led me to consider how architectural space governs contemporary experience. This continues in my current work where I work with images culled from mainstream fashion and decor magazines which I manipulate and juxtapose in new compositions. These form the basis for paintings.
My ongoing interests are in how we as individuals, define and negotiate our private experiences in the spaces where we live.
