Artist Statement
I perceive drawing to be about renewing continuously and reinventing traditional means. I always try to renew and make sure I see more possibilities in the works I do, for example, a charcoal drawing is further developed into an animation.  I am keen in traditional animation and techniques which combine solid drawing. I have always preferred to do things in the simplest of ways possible, my animations are made using simple drawing materials, existing objects I created/found, a still camera and a tripod. I worked intuitively and spontaneously, allowing the story to unfold and develop from suggestions taken from marks, lines and accidents in my drawings. Subsequent frames for the story are created through a repetitive process of drawing, erasing and re-drawing. The sequence of drawing, erasure and re-drawing determines how the narrative develops. Animation enabled me to further develop an ability to convey stories and ideas through moving images.  I am also interested in DIY ethics where people are involved in a process of putting things or objects together for their own use. A lot of my work comes from an interest in how things are made, how things are done and the way materials are manipulated and used.
