Festival: 2016

My award winning collage work seeks to re-invent rubbish, using found scraps to create energetic and intricate artworks. Often, I collage to capture and consolidate a particular memory or feeling, linked to a person, place or event.

Unusually for an artist, I see ‘community artwork’ as part of developing my own artistic ideas, rather than as a separate and unrelated entity. Community involvement happens to different extents in most my pieces; whether that be someone bringing me their most interesting ‘rubbish’ to incorporate in a piece, or working with a group of school children to design and create an artwork that will communicate a specific message.
