I am interested in psychological processes and the relationship between trauma and creativity. In the making of my work I encounter and encapsulate conflicting worlds, transitory and transitional states, merger and the overlap of experience out of which creativity is born.
I work with 'found objects' from the natural world, objects that speak of violence and which evoke disgust as their inherent beauty is disregarded.
Deconstruction of the object reveals a previously unseen inner world, a world of internal objects which inform my work. The parts are reassembled through a process of layering that involves projection, photography, collagraph prints, drawing and acrylic glazing to produce abstracted images that invite closer scrutiny and consideration.
