Much of my work evolves through a practice of walking.

I am a psychogeographer. Psychogeography, a term combining psychology and geography, generally refers to the influence of the geographical environment on one’s mind or behavior.

I am a flâneuse. This takes the 19th century term flâneur, originally used to describe a man of leisure strolling the streets of Paris, and updates it for me to specifically define a contemporary feminist identity.

Walking and sensing the environment is field study for my studio work. Sensations of constructed space, whether formed by natural forces or built by human endeavour, reveal patterns and interconnections defining place and buried histories.
