About the Work
I am passionate about portraying experiences of a contemporary sense of being that is structured within our environment. The work often includes elements of storytelling, memory and mind mapping as means of creating conceptual and expressive environments. My thematic practice explores contemporary life from conceptual and emotive perspectives.
My multi-disciplinary practice includes installations (site specific, interactive), sculptures, painting, drawing, mixed media, video art, photography, printing and digital art. The media employed and creative processes undertaken on any particular project are determined by the ideas and contexts behind the work.
As an artist-curator I have worked with various artists within a multi-cultural environment. I perceive my curated projects as a medium and extension of my own artistic practice.
