Welcome to my Portfolio
I am a mixed media artist working with photography, collage, and organic materials found in nature such as plants and seaweeds. I am interested in what can be revealed about the invisible world around us and bring that into form through my artwork.
I draw inspiration from my environment, and the stars. I find texture, pattern and imperfections in the forgotten things that have been discarded finding a way to repurpose these things in my art.
I enjoy looking back over old photographs of ancestors I never knew, or places I’ve never been. By “sitting” with these images I can abstract the ‘essence’ of them to create something new, whereby gain a deeper connection to them and thereby discover something about myself in the process.
Some of my influences come from the work of Alfred Stieglitz, Joseph Cornell, William Blake, Robert Rauschenberg and Frida Kahlo.
