I'm a London based artist working mostly with collage and found images. The world is already full of images ,we are constantly bombarded with them everyday, we often forget to really look. I find my images from inside forgotten books ,hidden away from the world, often gathering dust at the back of charity shops, unwanted and homeless. I like to rescue these forgotten people and put them in the spotlight, giving them a chance to be seen a chance to live in the present. Their story very much becomes part of my story. Often an intimate disclosure of my own life events, fleeting memories of childhood that are partly concealed, layered, or exposed within a frame. Memories are never vivid or clear, we often create our own version of them to help us cope or process things. It may be a sound, smell or a blurred still from the movie of our lives. I want the viewer to take a step back in time and see their own memories in my artwork. I have a background in painting, however collage allows me to tap into my child self. The immediacy of creating a picture using imagination , before an age where your self-critical, perfectionist voice becomes a part of you , is something i craved to have again as an adult. Collage enables the subconscious to create , not the conscious. Its been a healing process to see what i create after I'm finished, because it allows the parts of me i cant voice , the memories i cant acknowledge , to come out through the artwork.
