Artist Statement

The stories children have been told for centuries are intended to teach moral lessons,  but they also can be whimsical and downright nonsensical, particularly nursery rhymes. Couched in a language no longer in everyday use, many make little sense at all but are etched in our minds from early childhood repetition. My photographic collages examine these fairy tales and nursery rhymes and turn them on their heads, offering a different interpretation as I see it from an adult perspective. My real aim is to use elements from classic tales to create a new version that is both amusing and visually appealing.
