I’m interested in familiar elements of architectural vernacular and the inhabiting of them; the empty, bleak balcony of a 3-storey walk-up or the cluttered storage space for mops, bikes, children's toys and the clothes' horse.
I like to capture the everyday images that have a resonance with urban living and this may extend to the big city or smaller country town holiday house. I’m fascinated by the details of how people use their spaces or don’t, through rearranging, shaping, embellishing and customizing. I’m intrigued by the contrast with the trimmed lawn or kikuyu jungle, organised geraniums or cracked pots housing a dead stalk. In this sense I like to explore how we mark our territory as our own by outward manifestations of how we live in our place.
