"My practice explores the degeneration of urban landscapes where social and historical significance's are visible of being lost. Decaying architectural surface layers provide a trace and glimpse of our past history, fuelling my desire to visually record and document these transient states."

These city areas depicted by the artist often have a disordered feel to them as they provide a contrast to the increasingly smooth, regulated spaces new buildings provide.  Her 'canvas' is continuously changing and will eventually be gone forever, so capturing this impermanent state is important.

"I aim to make people more aware of their direct environment, the often overlooked or crumbling buildings, soon to be obliterated from our landscapes."
