A brightly coloured vibrant composition using a variety of textures and randomness
I create images painting with collage, building layers of texture, incorporating memorabilia, to enable me to capture memories. I embellish loved items, using still life compositions to celebrate my passion for colour, pattern and things retro. I utilise inks and pen detail enhanced with pencil, glitters and fabric to sculpt my objects that I love and collect.
My work is an abstract vision of my travels and favourite places, initially inspired by my stay in East Prawle, South Hams; and brings together the recycling of my memories and materials collected along the way. My art pieces are then a memory tree of past and present whilst acting as my vehicle for self-reflection and mental health well-being
I choose the medium of collage because I enjoy the randomness of how you can create a composition feeling more able to take a risk at experimenting with perspective and fantasy. I create rich tapestries of colour and texture and recently in, depicting iconic scenes of Bristol, the city I live and love.
