Artist Statement

 

My work can best be described as a visual diary, with each piece of work starting long before I reach my studio. I am constantly searching for and unearthing precious ‘finds’ – remnants of past or forgotten times. I seek to instil a fresh life into these discoveries and find beauty in what others have discarded.

 

Inspiration is taken from the world around me – our lives are spent amongst a bewildering clutter of sights, sounds, events and encounters with people, which are mirrored through my collage paintings and assemblages. I aim to bring order to the chaos, to form a visual harmony from the confusions of life.
