I started out in comics a couple of decades ago and, to my mind, that is the practice that I continue still. Through reduction of motive and narrative, I have arrived at the non-figurative collages that I work with today.
I see that development as a freedom from story and linearity – a reading experience more like that of maps than of text, and as an exploration rather than finding the quickest way from A to B. In effect, I create worlds for a reader to get lost and find their own way in.
