I’m interested in making art that challenges and engages the viewer, art that suggests different ways of seeing. Taking risks and challenging processes drive me in my work, so experimenting with different materials are essential to my practice. I create work in 2D and 3D, sometimes a combination of both.
My latest paintings are concerned with the counterbalance between corporeal and spiritual and my aim is to achieve this by creating equilibrium between painting and drawing. Abstract and figurative elements in equal measure.
One of the most influential lecturers when I studied at Leeds, was painter and sculptor, George Hainsworth. He taught me that you needed courage as an artist to break away from the mould. There always needs to be an element of fear in making work.
