Drawing is my primary concern and as such I am interested in pushing the boundaries of what defines a drawing.

In addition to working from source material I combine print making, text and collage using found material in conjunction with such mundane utilitarian media as Tippex, Biros and markers.

Instinctively, these works start small and concentrated but often move into larger formats. Work that begins on the wall starts to colonise the floor space and shifts from 2D into relief, from collage into bricolage, thus blurring the distinction between drawing and installation.
