Image transfer and  acrylic paint on a wooden board.

A false memory is a memory which is a distortion of an actual experience or even a mixture of an imagined one.  Here I have combined fragments of two photographs layered on top of each other to show the confusion when trying to remember something and the details become merged into one.

Acrylic paint and embroidery on canvas.

The nostalgia with the simple act of sewing in particular resonates for artist and viewer alike. It reminds us of the past when time did not seem so rushed, the quiet domestic task is somehow both productive and comforting.

All things tend to become faded and lose their details when they are forgotten. Here I have been experimenting by photographing my acetate images in a different environment in nature as if they have been discarded.
