‘These prints and drawings are an exploration of Venice’s architecture through opposing points of view; such as, dawn and dusk, the interior versus the exterior of a church, or a building and it’s reflection in the canal. Than, I compared these views by superimposing one over the other. Through these comparisons, I saw complementary relationships and patterns that made the city come together more as a whole. This sense of opposites, yet integration, is one aspect of what makes Venice so fascinating to me.’

‘This series of collagraphs and sculptures seek to explore the relationships between natural and artificial, preciousness and waste, alive and inanimate. The plates are made from reclaimed plastics, scrap fabric and paper bonded together with acrylic medium. The sculptures of birds are made of reclaimed plastics and wire.’
