Artist’s statement

I set out to discover and question the events that have shaped the person I am today. Knowing myself better than anyone else is what led me to investigate my true self. I used a variety of artmaking practices, including mixed media and Photoshop. The mixed media helped me illustrate my childhood without being obvious while Photoshop helped enhance the clarity of who I am today. These techniques worked together so that each piece was linked in one way or another.

Influencing artists: Rosalie Gascoigne, Brett Whiteley, Frida Kahlo, Martin Smith
