Dennison’s work is about landscape: how important or unimportant it is to people; how we notice it, or do not notice it and why certain landscapes resonate more strongly with us than others.   By projecting landscapes into unexpected architectural scenarios for example a cupboard that reveals an avenue tailing off into the distance or the ebb and flow of the sea projected onto stairs, she creates situations where culture and nature converge.

Dennison graduated from the Slade School of Art in 1987 and obtained a distinction in her MA at Central St Martins in 2013. She has exhibited widely in London, Bejing and Tokyo.  She lives and works in London.
