Artist Statement

Mixed Up describes the style of my work, the inspiration for my work, the material for my work and ultimately the images I produce. The human and material landscape is where I draw my inspiration, captured through my own photography or found in the environment in which I live and the world I travel through. There is all around us a limitless source of cultural references that enthuse, intrigue and excite.

My artistic challenge is to reimagine our ordinary and elevate it to something extraordinary. I am always striving to find ways of adding visual layers to my imagery.  I like to employ different mediums and explore different techniques in an effort to create original and thought provoking works of art.

…‘we must be prepared for a journey of discovery, we must start without any preconceptions; most of all we must be open to the beauties of fortuity. Here more than anywhere else these beauties, wandering and extravagant, obligingly enrich our fantasy’
Hannah Höch
