Artist’s statement

Life before me explores the music, fashion and recreational influences on my parents’ personal lives before I was born. My process began by researching and collecting objects relevant to the lives of my parents, such as my mother’s adoration of Fleetwood Mac. I was further influenced by photographs from their youth and childhood, which I painted onto various surfaces and objects that belonged to them and were part of their passion of the time. The work portrays an intimacy between family and each other, which has been passed on to me.
