The Space Between (2010-) is a series in which I make use of diverse images from my personal archives that – alone, and combined – carry an emotional weight: the liminal space that exists between my experiences and encounters with self and the viewer’s own connection to these moments frozen in time.

Employing lithography in the printing process allows for further iterations and interpretations of a single image; a shifting of the metal plate here, a little more magenta there and the resulting print conjures new feelings. 

Equally, I am interested in capturing the banal and ordinary in our daily lives – a passing cloud, antiques in a shop window, or sunlight filtering through curtains.  My emotional response to layering and combining these “unremarkable” images is often the opposite – extraordinary, stimulating – and challenges ideas about what is “good” or “important” in image-making.
