I use collage as a technique. Using recycled images and materials in various media and platforms my work navigates representational imagery and abstraction. The mixed media images in the sketchbook are constructed by designing in layers to create pattern. My work is informed by architectural design and commercial art as these are my day jobs. Through collage and geometry my work tries to find balance in composition between images, shapes and repetitive pattern.
I work in collage because I love found objects that I can then re-imagine and perhaps give new meaning. I use mostly women in my work, because well I am a women. I use ads, because I am fascinated by the construct of marketing. Re-imagining and reinterpreting images in magazines represents to me a small rebellion.
The sketchbook was a liberating experience, because I became unafraid to make mistakes. I was not worried about things being perfect. This allowed me to experiment.
