New Generation Gallery


My practice dips into the themes of memory, reflection, storytelling and the self. Working primarily with paint and collage, with some sculpture and installation. Water holds the memory of everyone and everything that it has encountered. As a scuba diver I wanted to incorporate this idea into my work. My practice is deeply personal – exploring my mind and using imagery from my childhood.
