For me, it’s all about stories.
The stories of people no longer around to share. I love to explore them and celebrate them through my love of collage.
The stories I create in my mind inspired by objects and imagery that come to life through layers of paper and found imagery.
The stories that us humans tell ourselves, the ingrained beneath the surface stories that we have created, the ones that have now wound themselves tightly into our subconscious and are affecting our day to day lives.
My own stories, the ones that aren’t always comfortable to share are usually the ones that need to be shared the most, I unpick them carefully and process them as I make.
Colour field inspired painting processes, found imagery and ephemera using materials seeped in traditional, historically feminine and maternal associations and the objects that I create with my hands allow me to consciously communicate my subconscious in a language that sits more comfortably with me.
