I juxtapose traditional drawing and painting materials with building materials and post-production items in paintings that explore the friction in the modern landscape between our urban environment, and nature.

My work has been described as ‘post-minimalist pop’, which reflects my interest in the simplicity and power of reductive geometric forms contrasted with the fragility or brutality of materials and fabrics from the everyday world.

The works in my current series, Urban Flora, are contemporary landscape paintings: cement casts of plastic bags I find in the urban and suburban creeks, snagged on branches and rocks, like flowers in this new Anthropocene era.
