about the art
As an artist I engage in an intuitive process of searching, gathering, incubation, envisioning and construction. My creative practice works consciously and subconsciously to explore and reveal ongoing and re-occurring themes such as mental and bodily sensation, trauma, death, transformation, the surreal and the ‘shadow self’. The creation of something new from the fragments of that which has been broken is a significant objective of the work and forms the basis of my visual compositions. The works function primarily as sites of division and dislocation between the internal state and the outer world.
