This body of work uses vintage maps and guides to present sculptural geo-historic collections. They bring together elements of place; the small details merging past with the present. They are revised geographies, inviting the viewer to consider their own interaction and experience of a place.

This small artwork, created from vintage maps and guides, explores the sense of place found in the open expanse of the muddy Severn estuary mingled with old victorian seaside towns.
This piece was developed to draw attention to the disappearance of green spaces due to urban expansion. Research from old maps shows how geographies have changed as our cities have pushed outwards.
