“My work is a reflection on the human experience. The mundane daily squeeze of humanity the pressure cooker we can live in, down to the daily grit under our nails. Through a lens of humour and hope with the wry smile and belief of the witch doctor, I create objects and images of the human form mixed with the precious and supernatural. Collaborations of forms that bridge worlds. The human form is a canvas for my imagination, a vessel for expressing the fluidity of the human experience. We are endlessly captivating, our emotions constantly shifting. The body is a place of constant change, and I find myself drawn to the inexplicable, the unmeasurable essence that lies beyond the physical. It is this mystery that I seek to capture in my art.”
