My choice of medium was born out of my first occupation in a newspaper archive. As we cataloged the papers, we were left with piles of them to throw out at the end of the day. I loved the beautiful photos I saw on the discarded pages and I started to collect them. In my work I collage newspapers on canvas and wood panels, which I finish off with a layer of acrylic paint and a lettering statement channeling my daily impressions and fears. Each piece brings attention to a topic that is dear to me, such as climate change, greed, and immigration, while preserving the value of the printed word, which risks disappearing in this digital age. My work upholds the importance of free expression and carries the message that it’s never too late to turn things around for the better.
