For many years I deconstructed everyday images into playful di- or tri-chromatic works with functional textiles. I tackled everything from flora and fauna to mammalian reproduction with scissors and vinyl. I have always been heavily influenced by bold, punchy colours and retro memorabilia. I am currently fascinated by the possibilities within a single image, and how shifting just one or two elements can create a socially uncomfortable narrative. My collage series, “Sinister”, showcases these self-reflexive collages, which play with body language and intent to leave the viewer with a complex sense of negative space (pun intended).
