I am a new media artist using photography, video, sound, digital media, drawing and performance. My main influences are figurative works, everyday life and capturing a moment or action. My work is often developed using various of these media together and the media I choose to use depends on each individual projects. I like to explore themes on a conceptual level and draw themes from life, so my work is quite personal and intimate, but my work can also relate to wider themes and subjects which are happening in the world now.
Current running themes include working with graphic line drawings and taking these into photography in a lively and playful way. Also, I have been creating a series of short films which include the spoken word, presented in a poetic, dream-like audio visual experience for the viewer. Recent films explore various different journeys and most recently I have been linking my short films and poetry back into my performance art as well.
