Whatever medium I work in, painting, drawing, sculpture or video, my ideas come from a place of personal experience and interest with a focus on the human condition and the natural world.
My practice starts with an idea then I explore it by working on multiple pieces. While making my work the process is important as it often reveals progress and further discovery of the themes I started with.
