Early Work

In 2013, the local Community Centre were looking for people to run art classes. I thought collage might be a fun class to teach; so I wrote a proposal, made a few collages and submitted my application. I never heard back from the community centre, but I’ve been making collages ever since.

I love everything about it: looking for the pictures, cutting them out and arranging the compositions. There is only one thing I am not too keen on, and that’s the gluing – which is ironic, as collage is French for to stick.

As with all art, my collages have evolved over time.
