I make work that investigates the purpose, value and journey of the sacrificial life, utilizing animal imagery in a figurative style that evokes a sense of empathy and relationship.
I am currently exploring belief systems and how they compel us to a sense of purpose or service, often at great emotional or physical cost. I choose subjects that are typically unseen and disregarded. I love the “little guy”, I think that the most profound truths can be found in the smallest details and quietest moments of these lives.
Like so many other artists, I draw on my own experiences of loss and redemption, presenting narratives that are personal and often intimate, a result of my own journey with scopophobic anxiety and depression.
Working in mixed media and ceramics, my pieces are built up from many parts, incorporating a high level of detail and layering that often requires a second, closer look.
