I have a keen interest with images and objects from the 1940s and 1950s. I see this as a way of connecting myself to my late father who was brought up in the 1950s. Collecting and amassing material has always been present in my life as my father collected antiques and like me, 'never threw anything away'. I reinvent and give forgotten objects a new life, whether it is by using collage or sewing to take ownership of them. But I also try to keep a part of its history visible.
I work in collage, book art, sculpture and installation.
I have just completed my degree in Fine Art at Cardiff School of Art and Design.
