I enjoy making nonlinear narrative assemblages inspired by history, memories and symbolic materials found anywhere and everywhere. People kindly offer discarded items. Sometimes objects and historic materials inspire an artwork whilst other times the artwork is inspired by stories remembered. The assemblages come to represent stories about individuals, families or businesses within a place and all those connected to the symbolic objects ultimately used within the work.
The collages have been a development coinciding with the assemblage work. As I began to use more historical printed matter on my assemblages, I began making collages separately on their own. The collages have allowed me to continue to play with different type of textures and materials whilst eliminating the complexity of considering a multitude of separate visual planes.
I welcome the opportunity to transform your unique story into visual poetry. To commission an artwork or if you have an inquiry about original works and/or prints for sale please contact me for further information.
