Artist’s statement

This year I journeyed to my wits’ end: a place removed from the structured reality of my school routine. All logical thought was shortly expended. In response, using watercolours, ink, cut paper and monoprints on watercolour paper, I explored the emotions, thoughts and memories and the little, personal, significant moments that had shaped my experience of my last year of school. Please read my story, in sequence, from the top left.

Influencing artists: Shaun Tan, Ghostpatrol
