Through my artwork, I am a storyteller. I piece together old photographs, letters, well-loved books, scraps of lace – things that have been forgotten or discarded – to create a story. Sometimes I come across an image, abandoned at a flea market, and it immediately speaks to me – a dapper young man in 19th century dress peering up at me asks me to tell his long-forgotten story. I run across a photo of an old farmhouse with some marking scrawled on the back and my mind begins to wonder.
My work combines a number of elements and techniques. I use collage – bits of paper, layers of paint, and images – that gradually come together to form a story within each piece.
