In my artwork, I am intrigued by spatial relationships, texture and chance. I work emotionally and visually to divide space and make it interesting. I then use a variety of: mediums, papers, fabrics, images, and found objects to add color and create interest. I enjoy taking a fragment or object, with all the history and associations that come with it, and giving it a new life as part of my art. Everyday items become transformed and imbued with new meaning and purpose, often a meaning I’m not consciously aware of. I like the viewer to be drawn into the piece, discovering the many different layers used to create the overall composition, and deriving their own personal meaning.
