Experience as a museum professional, as well as drawing on my memories as a child, inform the curatorial qualities in my work.
My images derive meaning from relationships, visual memory and the archiving process inherent in all of us. I collate and curate memory prompts as a device to explore the way that related and disparate imagery create further connections and associations and further extend our own experiences.
Working with collage and also paint, I work in an iterative manner with the surface as a receptacle for ongoing experimentation in coupling, pairing, relating and otherwise relationship defining adjacencies.
A particular piece though is not a never ending series of experiments, a work is complete when that work assumes a separate identity.

Please message me if you are interested in my work, have questions or would like to purchase.
