My work is about following each piece and being intuitively open to an unspoken dialogue that spans a breath of choices and unknown exit points. My interest in memory is the makings of the complexities of a souvenir. The moments captured with an object that creates a personal language. For me being an artist is an act of prosaic looking that feeds making for heterogeneous artefacts that confront the real world, curated by movement of life that allows the work to be witnessed in challenging surroundings. I see my work as an anthology of objects, each being a unique incomplete tangible question that collects personal provenance. What stimulates my work and research is the ongoing amassments of stuff I collect and own. Obsessions happen without acknowledgement and my inventory shows no boundaries to objects, just an attraction that I find it hard to explain other than: we find each-other.

a project revisiting turning points of my creativity. making pieces that can act as collectors, adding and amassing sentimental objects. questioning ownership and transition of making and the importance of nominating from personal archives.
working from objects in jars. learning from and using.
