"A celebration of a life well lived of an industrious women who created a home, building a family space foundered on hard work and love. The work was the result of collecting multiple photographs of the home I grew up in, prior to it being put on the market and sold to an eager developer. The artwork resonating with imagery that transcends time and triggers personal memories founded on experiences of loss and life’s celebrations. Through exploration of treasured objects, my work seeks to invite the audience into their own connected encounters. I have used photography, printmaking, sewing and collage techniques together with the fleshy resemblance of the textured cream paper, to bring a sense of presence. The body of work includes a sculptured paper dress, framed photographic windows and embossed images."
