"I am a baby boomer! I was brought up to believe that financial success would enable happiness and that it was important to work hard and accumulate material wealth.

My project, SELF MADE, highlights a group of baby boomers relaxing in their homes or in pursuit of their hobbies. The project has been described as People who have everything but nothing; and nothing but everything. What constitutes their treasure may be noticed and interpreted in very different ways. What is “everything” and “nothing” in the lives depicted?

I want the viewers to be slightly perplexed but also intrigued by the ambiguity of the images.

The double entendre, SELF MADE, might first suggest that the viewers will be seeing images of external material success. However, they may discover once they examine the pictures, that the work depicts people who have made themselves, in a deeper sense, over a lifetime of experience and development.
