About

As an artist I am interested in the extremes of human experience, subconscious imagery, altered states, ritual and superstition. My work is created from observation, photography and found imagery, which I combine and develop into works of imagination through drawing, oil painting, etching, digital manipulation and video production. Due to its composite nature, the imagery produced often has an element of ambiguity leaving it open to the viewer’s own interpretation.
