Jodie House
Weymouth, Dorset, United Kingdom


I found that collage work allowed me to observe life’s nuances from standing still. I’m an observer and often distracted by nuances in life. My collage aims to show the beauty of the silent strength of women around me. I love the process of collage, sourcing materials, ripping and touching. Being obsessed by a tiny scraps of paper that are discarded.


I have grown up in Dorset, United Kingdom. I have two grown up children and my home is Weymouth, a very typical British seaside town. I have worked in the community as an artist with vulnerable young people and families for the last 20 years. In my work, I use collage, film and photography as toolboxes for processing emotion and to support people making sense of trauma.

I am an active member of and contributor to Women in Street photography and the online collage community. I hold a degree in video production and curate a long term youth documentary photography project MySpaceMyPlace.

I started making collages two years ago and and am currently setting up my first exhibition in my community.
