WHEN DID YOU FIRST WANT TO BECOME AN ARTIST?
When I was a kid, I used to watch the Saturday afternoon matinees on TV with my mum. There was a Bette Davis film called A Stolen Life where she plays an artist with this amazing studio. I knew then and there that was what I wanted to do.
WHERE DID YOU STUDY?
While I was studying for my foundation in art, I discovered I really liked three-dimensional design. Brighton Polytechnic [now Brighton University] did a great course in this, so Brighton is where I chose to do my degree.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR ARTWORKS?
They are labour-intensive collages. I re-appropriate printed ephemera to create fantastical worlds, as well as to rewrite storylines and characters from films I love.
