I am a multidisciplinary, self-taught artist. I draw, paint, print, collage and collect.
As my artistic practice takes shape, alongside the final pieces, I employ long-term, thoroughly documented research as a way of amassing multiple notebooks and journals, which I sometimes exhibit. My obsession with 'keepsakes' extends to all manner of ephemera, which I always make use of. A large part of my art practice is scavenging and regenerating.
My particular interests are collecting, preservation, memory, mortality, sense of self, and identity. I often following themes of social alienation, personal boundaries, ambiguity and subversion of the 'common sense'. Linear time, the existance of consciousness and self-attributed ritual for protection and symbolism is of great interest to me. I am overly concerned with collating and categorising, fixating on partitioning the 'collections' of my interests, expressed as an extension of my self, and therefore, my own identity.
