I am interested in the worlds that are unseen, the realm of the imagination, all that live in them and the emotions within us. My work addresses the theme of identity and is an exploration of the many layers, which defines who we are as individuals.

For me, one of the most important aspects of my art is to evoke feelings and have the viewer relate to the work on an emotional level. I create figurative pieces with a sense of realism in order to create a direct connection to the viewer.

I am interested in the idea of emotions and experiences coming together to form layers that make up ones identity - much like our physical anatomy, in which each layer such as bone, flesh and skin overlaps and builds onto the next, creating new forms that bury the old.

My inspirations come mainly from nature and everything I see. I am fascinated by the complex layers or parts of every living thing and how it all works together to create something that is
alive, something that thinks, feels, listens and breathes. I then take this fascination and apply it to everything I see, making everything take on life and this is where my work begins.

I am interested in the worlds that are unseen, the realm of the imagination, all that live in them and the emotions within us. My work addresses the theme of identity and is an exploration of the many layers which define who we are as individuals.
