About me

The use of collage appeals to me, it has a playful, occasionally irreverent quality which allows one to bring together seemingly disjointed things to create something completely different, revealing new connections and stories, while also quietly holding on to a little of the history of whatever material was used in the collage. I particularly enjoy editorial and book design projects, seeing a narrative in a piece of writing and creating an image which both illustrates the themes within that writing while also playing with those different ideas to bring another way of seeing things to the table.
