I am an interdisciplinary practitioner, printmaker and painter whose work also extends into ceramics and sculpture.I experiment with various techniques and express myself using a wide range of materials and processes. Through the intuitive nature of my work the element of discovery is of most significance, allowing accidents and mistakes to occur. Although, sometimes I deliberately provoke them, my interest is to develop flexible thinking and to improve my visual language challenging at the sametime the hegemony of the two-dimensional art disciplines.

Often my interestis revolving around the simplification  of abstract forms that arise from the interpretation of the figurative image. A process that, I believe, allows the viewer to make their own interpretation of a piece of art. I strive to create a space where the public can interact with their imagination and to realise the fictionality of the perception created by our unconscious.

My work is an ever-evolving process, it can start with collages made up of discarded defective prints, or it can derive from collected, exhibition, ephemera. I manipulate my elements, I choose one print and work in various ways. I dissolve, push, pull, deconstruct, construct and collapse the image resulting in a process of constant abstraction andfiguration. As I don’t have a preconceived idea it’s a call and response outcome.

The 2D collages reach out in relief, they feel sculptural in themselves, I take the opportunity from this 2D collages to go into 3D sculpture and them back to the 2D painting, is a back and forth process mirroring the work of Michael Lady and his collages.

I perceive my work as spontaneous and playful, intuitively mixing gelements from both observation and imagination. My future plans include working on a larger prints and incorporating the idea of scale in my work. Lastly, Iwould like to expand my practice into the space and transform my pieces into three-dimensional installations that will have haptic and sculptural qualities as well as sound elements.
