I use woodcut printmaking, drawing, banner-making, walking and other procedures, to present statements, memories of landscape, and overlooked details. Often incorporating ambivalent texts, natural forms and the heritage of dissent, the work  relies on the idea that people bring their own experience, biography and interpretation to artworks and participate in creating its meaning. Their meanings often allude to experiences of landscape and questions about social relations and the common good.
