Congratulations on winning Zealous Stories: Painting! Your winning series ‘Houses of Kadıköy’ was inspired by a trip to Turkey. How do you typically go about documenting your experiences?
Thank you, it was a lovely surprise. Whenever I’m away, I always make sure to take lots of photographs. I normally just use my phone, but I’ve also got a little pocket camera which has a better zoom if needed.
You work in a number of mediums including paint, collage, print and installation. Before embarking on a new project, what informs your decision regarding media?
Although I enjoy working in other media, paint is what I make the majority of my work with, so I never really have to make that sort of decision. I do always go back to collage, especially if I’m in between bodies of work. It’s been a long time since I’ve done any printing, but I’d definitely like to make some more screenprints in the future.
