Statement on practice.
My work is contemporary figurative and has been described as surreal. My images are created from my imagination and are often derived from subconscious thoughts. My subject is usually of a solitary human being who is unable to speak.
I try to make his/her thoughts visible, which are of course, invisible. The only way I can express this is by using a symbolic language which takes the form of written words and images on the body. It is important to me that the language I use is difficult to interpret.
Foreign travel has always inspired new ideas. Visiting countries such as, Mexico, Spain, Indonesia, Bali, Quebec, Italy, Cyprus, Poland and most recently Greece, has given me a never ending source of new ideas to tap into, for which I will be eternally grateful.
