Artist Statement

I am drawn to the vulnerable and fragile nature of the multi-faceted human condition.Using semi-familiar imagery taken from a variety of sources, my work aims to give a new life to an image, emphasising the interactions between characters within and creating a new context for them to exist in.

I attempt to create a space, a new world filled with ambiguity , interrelation and questions. I would like my work to be read like language. The imagery within is full of literary devices peppered with metaphor and simultaneously depicting simple and complex gestures. I love the variety of narratives and possibilities a single image can evoke. I believe the line between reality and fiction can often be blurred, and am intrigued by the prospect of depicting the space between the two.
