To cover a wall with wallpaper is to open up a window onto an ideal world, in an attempt to create our private utopia. We inhabit wallpaper to make a statement about how we see ourselves and how we want to see the world allowing us to bring the outside world into our homes. By taking inspiration from domestic and urban landscapes I transpose them into visual representations of patterns that are constructed from wallpaper cut outs, to create a sense of home. The wallpaper acts as a traditional yet idealistic barrier used as a comforting device whilst viewing these beautifully decorative everyday images.

...It has been said that art does not change the world,
but art and art history have changed the way we look at the world....
