STATEMENT

Creating art is an innate part of my life. I am an interdisciplinary mix-media artist and much of my work—is often an intuitive process—focusing upon the expressive gestural impetus of media and paint including its materiality. My work is also driven by a strong theoretical interest in a diverse array of philosophical topics: in ontology, existentialism, phenomenology, critical theory, and post-structuralism.
