I work mainly in acrylic on canvas, using large firm brushes or a palette knife. I often incorporate cotton fabric remnants and clothes labels into my work. I am inspired by places I visit, both near and far.
Something on my journey will lead me to the choice of fabric, for its colour or its repetitive pattern. A moment or a memory of the journey creates the character, the people or the objects in my work.
Any text within the work is often ambiguous, so the overall interpretation of it, is lost in individual translation - I like this confusion in my work !
Alongside the work on canvas I create 2D and 3D pieces inspired by the original artworks. These items can be in the form of a transformation of an existing object.
Selected pieces of artwork or parts of artwork are also printed onto objects to create items for household use and decoration.
