My work repurposes found lath from local renovations in the Guelph, Cambridge areas. Using materials associated with construction, I recreate a support that corresponds to the material's original purpose (walls) and then draw my landscapes on the plaster surface. Some works contain portions of discontinued wallpaper also reminding the viewer that these materials were at one time the wall. It is somewhat labour intensive to locate and rebuild the support with the lath, however the act allows me to make a connection  to the environment as I prevent the material from heading to landfill.  My work captures the local environment as the landscapes are based on photos I have taken and the numbers below refer to their GPS locations. I use pencil and aim to demonstrate a return to drawing, ultimately as a means to an end. View these images
