My work is an interpretation of images from online and print media that I am instinctively drawn to. I also make use of collage to create my own compositions. This allows me to combine images from different genres and time periods, so that the finished work reflects the fact that contemporary is part of a continuum which contains and is influenced by the past. And besides being a snapshot of current events, it can also be an acknowledgement of the past and a glimpse into the future.
