In every situation there is an emotional charge and one begins.
There are the things that we see, and the things that we feel, and both are equally important in the process of recording and processing the information and exercising the emotional charge.
The images were made on a smart phone and record the commuting experience from Hackney to Harrow.
The work is based on traditional, observational, figurative sketching and drawing.
The practice is to look at the object and make marks.
Until the ink is sprayed onto the paper, the work is not manifest and cannot be assessed, but once printed, it's real and can be reflected upon and decisions made about that particular effort of mark making.

'I use materials as ‘fragments’ to explore notions of permanence, disposability, change.
Materials are often recycled in my work – intuitively arranged and suspended to offer traces of narrative.
Suitcase is a multidisciplinary work incorporating painting, text, assemblage, textiles that explore notions of belonging. My work focuses on the physical properties of materials and how they interact site-specifically - in the case of this exhibition - at Islington Arts Factory, a former Victorian church building.'
