"My personal work explores identity, the boundaries between what is real and what is imagined and the way memory deteriorates and is reshaped over time. I am interested in the moments when the traditional relationship between us and the world around us is unraveled and replaced by a new definition of what we are or what we could be.


I work using photography, illustration, collage and digital manipulation. The techniques I use derive from a playful curiosity and direct interaction with the object.


I am fascinated by the fragmentation and degradation of the image and the concept of creation as a consequence of the physical and digital destruction of an object."
