Art is what ignites the soul. It has the power to initiate personal and social change. The way that I make my work has many layers of process, I feel that an essence is lost in the way imagery is increasingly mass produced and in my own practice I aim to try and conjure this unique quality which comes forward in the process. I work in an intuitive way crossing the boundaries between photography and printmaking.
I am motivated by the investigation of social barriers that humans have between each other and personal barriers we construct, internally and externally, preventing us connecting with Self. I have met with groups of people that may be deemed as outsiders in society for various reasons and as an artist I feel I have an affinity with these outsider groups.
My work invites people to pause a moment and ask questions about how they see others and themselves within the world.
I think that my work is unique due to the multi-layered approach I undertake.The way I produce images offers me many variables to consider and therefore the outcome can be unpredictable, unique and individual both visually and conceptually.
