‘My works are mixed media pieces combining collaged photographs and printed material, with three-dimensional artefacts attached to the glass of the frame. I am drawn to the iconic layout of LIFE magazine covers from the 1940s and 1950s, both the imagery and the typography. By manipulating one or both elements, I create new narratives to engage, perplex and hopefully delight the viewer.’
