Artist Statement

In my work I create figurative paintings which I occasionally combine with other elements to form pieces of fragmented stories which long to be told one small detail at a time.

I collect old family photographs and newspaper clippings; some from after I was born but most from a time well before mine. My painting process often begins with browsing these photos until I find a detail which catches my eye. The detail then becomes part of something new and larger than itself, joined together with other imagery inspired by childhood landscapes, science fiction and folk lore.

I am interested in occupying the space in between the real and the imagined.
