I am a mixed media artist, and I love working with pattern, texture, mark making and colour. I like re-purposing old book pages and working on paper ephemera. These surfaces often get covered, but tiny fragments can be exposed to reveal a sense of history and discovery. Collage gives me unexpected opportunities to create relationships between marks, textures and shapes that do not necessarily belong together. The work is frequently abstract but alludes to the context or concept the work is exploring.
