Statement

I create absurd, charged, fragmented narratives. They draw upon human dramas, especially childhood, family and rights of passage, to excavate the patterns of behaviour, systems and structures that define us. Combining personal motifs with references to votive and devotional art, history and contemporary culture, their main preoccupations are with power, vulnerability and desire.
My pictorial language is built around these themes. Operating between figuration and abstraction, and contrasting illusionistic space with a respect for surface and the materiality of paint, my focus is on an evolving vocabulary of forms that majors on meaning and layered identities.
