“Since I was a child, I have been drawn to painting and drawing plants. Each of these artworks represent a specific location and feature plants that grow in that area – spaces that hold significance to me or that I feel have a particular relevance. The images are inspired by a collection of separate photographs taken of these places and the plants that grow within them and then collaged together to form the composition of each painting. In this way the paintings themselves exist as if they are a memory of a place – fragmented, yet pieced together, in response to recollection over time.”
