A longstanding passion for photography and a desire to unleash the creative person within has led me to embark on a visual exploration of discovery. By experimenting with a variety of processes and techniques and incorporating drawing and painting I make collages and photomontages using my own photographs as a source of inspiration. Collage allows me to build my own organic shapes unrestricted by a single subject and unconstrained by a frame.
I create altered and complex pictures, taking my ideas from the vast array of images that arise from combining and layering and recreate them using a mix of materials including hand-made papers, fabrics and glass. Making art in this way allows me to take two- and three-dimensional images and objects and manipulate them in unconventional ways thus enabling me to change and challenge the perceptions of the viewer.
