Creating art is an innate part of my life. I am an interdisciplinary mix-media artist and much of my work is an intuitive process—which is focused on the expressive impetus of media and paint. My work is driven by strong theoretical interests in literary texts, criticism and a diverse array of philosophical discourses on ontology—existentialism and phenomenology.
