A symbolic image of those I have lost and a gentle place for thinking, away from the chaos of life, while being overlooked by my Guardian Angel.

Mixed media, digital print.
This series was created in 2012 in response to a project titled ‘Black and white with colour’ which came at a time where I was embarking on a new phase in my life. I wanted to channel this through self-portraiture and used the opportunity to start exploring mixed media processes.
Craving my own space to get clarity on my identity, I used locations, objects and animals that were of personal significance on my journey. Creating images that symbolised where I needed to be in life to find myself once more.
The layered images deliberately have a cut and paste collage effect, very much reflecting my fragile state of mind and the reality of life getting in the way of hopes, dreams and desires.
