Artist Statement

I work within two areas, that of painting and film.  I enjoy creating works that explore my outer and inner world. Life is an enigma that I enjoy exploring and questioning through my art. My subjects are usually inspired by the environment I am in at the time using found art, the human figure and nature as my primary subjects. In my films, themes such as memory, dreams and emotions are my main interest with an emphasis on movement of the human body and the natural environment, particularly, water, trees and birds, provoking me towards creating transient and dream – like narratives.
My mixed media art is a combination of real life and popular culture creating links and ambiguous dichotomies relating to memory and the present, using juxtapositions of imagery, colour and texture.
