"I approach a wide variety of subjects and represent them visually ranging from stark realism and still life to avant garde/experimental and abstract. There is always a strong personal narrative in all that I do, but there needs to be space as well for the viewer to be able to perceive my work with their own perspective in any subject matter; I feel that this is the strongest catalyst to create  dynamic & provocative pieces.

The primary thing about all of my work is that it is built around strong emotion and, regardless of the medium, will always convey a strong mood or emotion ... I work best in a 'stream of consciousness' method - just trying to let go and not force it, rather just go with what i feel and emote [materialize] it visually." feature
