Collection of Works

Acrylic paints on refurbished microscopic boxes, dollhouse parts, dog items, wood panels, white cotton string, spray paint, primer paint

My body of work studies the ephemeral nature of time and life and links appreciation to time and memory, reminding us that nothing is everlasting and to appreciate the small things, such as companionship, while they last. The ‘memory boxes’ show the transition between times in a personal framework: the ageing of my dog Jasper. While my work appears to convey a bleak message on the impermanence of things, it also suggests that there is no simple end to a life or connection. Despite the unavoidable passing of time, memories and other ‘imprints’ remain forever.
