Artist work statement:

Much of my work has explored forgotten or overlooked pockets of suburban areas in Milton Keynes. I am interested in how nature and the built environment co-exist or impose themselves upon each other and the relationships that occur between these liminal spaces. Over the last 45 years this planned suburban landscape has been softened, riddled and embellished by the ordered planting of once tender saplings. Watching the town mature over the years, witnessing and recording it’s shifts and moods is in a way a portrait of a burgeoning garden of personal memory and experiences that comes with living in a certain place and time.
