My work is digitally layered collage that incorporates a warm color palette and a sense of history and age. My layers come from my own photography, collages, printmaking, and ephemera.
I grew up in Ontario among trees and rocks, with art and photography constant companions. My degree in computer science, with electives in art, have come together again in this digital world.
These are just some examples of my work; see my website for more information on individual pieces and the series they belong to. Some images are available in limited editions, available by custom order; others are open editions, easily printed on demand at redbubble.com.
My work investigates our surroundings and how they interact with memory, permanence, change, and regrowth. How do we process our sense of place and the collective memories that go with it, even as it changes? What of all the people before us who’ve stood in the same place — did they wonder as I do, whether they were here to stay?
By capturing images and layering collage elements, I create abstracted viewpoints that explore timelessness, familiarity, and recognition. Individual photographs, very specific to a time and place, are obscured by layers of paper and texture, asking you to come with me on a journey of recognition as we all try to find our place in the world.
