Navigating the terrain of personal history, my practice delves into childhood memories and the meaning behind everyday objects at home. I identify items that evoke a sense of nostalgia and possess profound significance for myself. The inclusion of animals in my work is a deliberate choice rooted in a sustained childhood interest. The animals in my work serve as symbolic representations of people who hold a profound meaning in my life. By using animals and the domestic within my work, I can combine personal experiences with visual storytelling.

I use a wide range of printmaking techniques within my work. Using these techniques I deconstruct domestic spaces by recreating them using paper, photographic solutions and tea toners.
