I was born in Peru.
My parents brought me here aged 4. I can remember my first words in English...
"Janet ...Knows nothing".. the little girl said as she gestured to her nose.
Despite that, I love the language and all its heroes. Words and writing are precious to me.
I make images.
I am an avid news reader and collector of clippings (now digital).
My work is about using these in subversive ways,
It is about cutting chunks of everyday life and all its flotsam; love letters, ticket stubs, holiday snaps and setting them up a new.
I am a saboteur.
I use an iPad and apps Brushes and Sketches.
With these I draw using my fingers on the screen and cut, layer, erase and rework my own work.
I import and manipulate my images as well as anything publicly available that gets caught in my daily news feed.
I love mistakes.
