Artist Statement: My process as an artist now is pretty straightforward, I photograph the things that interest me, excite me, that make me smile and that sadden me. All manner of emotions - even those that are mundane; if it creates a feeling I will photograph it. I look for the aesthetic everywhere, in a building, in the close up of a crack in a wall or a child’s glove on a Greek beach. I love colour and texture, they are signifiers of the memory or mood I strive to capture. I then work through an editing process of associating image type with type to be used as various parts of a collage. Once I categorise the images into their separate aspects of the collage I then start to cut them up to make new images which create landscapes and cityscapes that reflect my own experiences and memories.
