"My work is paint and paper intertwined in a quirky mix of elusive moment and aching nostalgia. I love working with found vintage photos and paintings of old masters embedding them in my own paintings and creating a new narrative. By cooperating with painters and photographers through time I’m searching answers to questions - are memories best left untouched, a perfect record of the past? Or are they something to be part of our present?"
