Artist Statement

My paintings explore a psychological landscape that contains personal and cultural experiences. I am interested in the conflict between ‘fight or flight’ as competing impulses in response to chaotic events: do we engage with the issues that overwhelm us or seek escape through physical or fantastical experience?

My process involves collecting source materials and piecing elements together to create a study. This collaged study acts as a rough outline for the painting, which is then rendered through thin layers of acrylic paint on paper. While the paintings are informed by studies the finished work is a product of translation, an idea re-envisioned through material and imagination.
