I make art for a variety of reasons and in different ways. Some art I make because I want to reflect on where I sit in the world and connect to others who may share some of this history with me, sometimes sharing their stories as well. Some art I make because it gives me room to sort out my past and be a different person in the future. Some art I make because I can’t get the idea out of my head and I haven’t seen anybody else do it yet so I better give it a go.
Format wise I make works that hang on walls, artists’ books and I am starting to move into paper sculptures. I love the idea of taking linoprints and turning them completely into the unexpected – each new form is a challenge in terms of construction and working out how things fit and stay together.
