Artist Intro

I’ve always admired architectural drawings and maps but when I came to study architecture I felt limited by the conventions of architectural drawing.

In presenting my proposals I wanted my drawings to somehow convey a sense of the spaces I was designing. I am interested in how we as humans interpret and interact with our environment.

I began to look for alternative ways to communicate my ideas and in my practice I have experimented with film as an alternative form of ‘site analysis’.

My current research based work investigates the experience for women in Belfast’s urban environment.
