My drawings, paintings and sculptures explore responses to, and my engagement with, the printed text of specific pieces of literature and music. I am particularly interested in the role played by architectural environments or spaces in which the reading or performances of these texts unfold. I work towards artworks which convey the moment or moments when a text, a performance and an environment come together in graphite, ink, paint or clay to become a visual metaphor for the experience of reading a text or hearing a particular piece of music.
