STATEMENT

I love to cut and paste; to find weird little worlds where I can explore ideas of home and human nature; from our everyday habits to the places our hearts take us in our dreams.

I’m inspired by the arc of childhood to adulthood; how adventure, magic and endless possibility gradually transform into a ritualistic, everyday existence. I try to use my collages to reconcile the two.

BIO

I work in Early Childhood Education, facilitating play for a living. I use these skills to bring images together in my analog collages.

It fascinates me how images have already been on a journey and lived a physical life in books and magazines before they come to play on my studio floor.

I love to engage the images and the stories they have to tell in a play-like process.
I help them to converse and create new little worlds that no one has ever seen before.
