I produce collages which construct and re/present narratives. I am a collector of old encyclopedias, journals and magazines using found images to explore the multiple narratives of portraiture. I make my scenarios by trawling my collection of images and then layering them. In building layers of texture, colour, portrait and form I wait for the whole image to reveal itself. It is at this point, when the balance of what is there and what is not feels complete that I hand my collage over to the viewer to ask and answer their own questions.
