I discuss everyday philosophical matters that might otherwise pass us by and I feel it is important to document our present period in time. So, I do not like to be restricted politically or artistically, I am trying to do my own thing and I like to think that I operate ‘outside the box’. I have an interest in a future ‘OPEN SOCIETY’ where we can have open discussions about disability, gender, race, nationality, sexuality, class, ideas, our feelings and thoughts.

My work focuses on cultural/social issues and generally the everyday. I enjoy questioning mainstream thought, looking at alternatives and articulating aspects of society that are not addressed within contemporary art. It might be celebrating existing aspects of life or focusing on the new or even age old problems in life.

I  use narratives to convey my observations about contemporary society within my bitter-sweet statements. Exploring the unexamined is a key theme to my work and finding a new topic within our everyday to articulate. Gently disrupting current thought and asking “what do you think of this?” within my artworks.
