I’m interested in psychological states and use the human form as a means to exploring the psyche.
My work is an ongoing response to events/ situations and is influenced and informed by my interest in consciousness, universal law, balance and truth. I’m drawn to and portray characters with elevated mindsets, characters that challenge and move beyond the impact of circumstance, environment and social conditioning. Characters that realise their power and are liberated within my art.
I use my work to express, feel and to celebrate…to explore my inner thoughts and to make sense of the outer world. I see art as a type of resistance and creativity as a form of empowerment…I feel most powerful when I’m in that space.
I’ve come to understand that everything starts with a thought, with the belief and an expectation. So what happens when we exist in a society where there’s a constant battle for control of our minds in one way or another? How much of our thoughts are our own and do they correspond with our ‘self’?
It’s so frustrating for me when I see limitation being pushed as the norm especially when it comes in the form of oppression. How do you push past that without being consumed, how do you find a way to stay on purpose and realise your own potential? Where are the spaces that allow for this?
My art practice allows me to construct narratives that not only explore the complexities of the human condition, but also reflect the beauty of it.
