"As an artist I am fascinated by human nature and relish capturing on canvas the facades that we all hide behind. This fast-paced modern world offers up so much visual stimulus which presents an exciting opportunity to explore through the medium of paint. Across my work I enjoy combining totems and ciphers into my paintings. As this process has developed, I realised it was important to invite the viewer closer to my work. Aside from visuals, I use the integration of hand painted text juxtaposed alongside specific iconography to entice people to the surface of my canvases. The titles of my artworks are also important, as I value them as much as my brush strokes. Although I have an idea of what each painting means to me, I love nothing more than to hear the interpretations and ideas others find within my work.
