Doors fascinate me. What is behind? What does the door suggest? I am always photographing  and looking at them. There are many proverbs and sayings about doors, some of which I have used in these collages. For example, ‘it is necessary that a door be open or shut’; ‘a creaking door hangs longest’; ‘when one door shuts, another opens’. I start with a photograph or sketch of a door and let it tell me its story. The text is an important component of these works and is chosen for its relevance when bits show through the layers. The title of the work is often incorporated in the work.
