The forgotten, inane and the prosaic that litter the modern environment influence me and I attempt to represent them into something beautiful and more memorable. I often utilize found objects within my work such as paper, wood and glass and I construct either soft or hard edged collages.

 

 

For my work for Fletcher Moss Art Gallery, I decided to work with envelopes and highlight the beauty that is hidden on the inside of these oft-thrown away items of stationary, the underbelly of mundanity.

 

I have used the concept of contrasting squares to bring forward the sublime beauty of these overlooked but wondrous works of graphic design for the construction of the collages.
