Artist Statement

My work, using collage, printmaking  and photography, explores social and emotional issues that permeate both my world and the past.

In our own lifetimes, we accumulate and carry a collection of emotional and material souvenirs. Across different cultures in different times, universal human concerns unite us. 

I am fascinated by the way that in history we can recognise and identify with familiar domestic situations, grand passions, petty emotions and patterns of behaviour.

While our individual experiences are unique, the awareness of another person’s thoughts and feelings can trigger empathy and a sharper awareness of our own.

I believe that art should be transformative, and reach into the parts of one's being  that connect us all.
