I am a self-taught artist working primarily with photographs but also other types of mixed media. Photography is, for me, a means of being more present in the world and connecting to each moment and the place where I am at that moment. The series of photographs for this submission involve shadows on buildings. Shadows enhance the transitory nature of the moment which is also reflected in the history of the building. I'm very drawn to everyday structures and they are the main subject of another body of work in which I take multiple photographs from a variety of angles and combine them into a single image by hand weaving them together. Through this time consuming process I become intimately connected to the place, it's details, textures and presence.
