Everyone, and, everything has a story.
Stories have a universal appeal; they are an important part of Life in cultures all over the world, and give us the ability to connect on a deeper level, unlocking our humanity. They are an invitation to step into someone else’s world.
This body of artwork is a collection of stories from various facets of my Life – each collection is about an experience, a piece of history, or a reoccurring thought or theme, or sometimes even just a fleeting moment.
I find myself drawn to collage and mixed media techniques, and enjoy incorporating found objects, used paper, and rough edges – they are after all, extensions of the story of a person or a place; a shell, a rusty piece of hardware, an old sandal buckle, all have a past life. In turn they bring layers of texture, depth and richness to the pieces.
I am passionate about connecting with your stories too. I do commissioned pieces which can incorporate pieces or objects from your world and create a piece of art that is really personal to you. This would also make a really unique, once-in-a-lifetime gift that can be cherished always. Please contact me for more information.
