This body of work explores landscape and mapmaking in their ability to create space. I begin my work with cartographic and topographical marks that are used to create maps of imaginary spaces. The pieces are then layered with abstracted paintings based on memories of places visited. The imaginary space aims to give a familiar sense of place yet questions the real and unreal. The act of mapping invented spaces through the use of cartographic mark making addresses the role of boundaries within human experience and attempts to subvert those boundaries in these imaginary places.
