Screen_Shot_2018-01-31_at_10.39.46.pngI create visibility from a dot, to form, to colour. As an artist and author, form is my foundational inspiration. It becomes the consenting body for my fantasmic, erective intentions. Colour and form possess an equal share of both my emotions and derivations from within my soul, of which l marry together into one solid connection. I create to be in tangible touch with my soul.

However, l also use colour as a condiment, if not a petticoat, to honour and soften the nakedness of my formations or bodies. The world l exist in is Spiritually chaotic, and hibernating into my works is reminiscent of "away from the madding, inspiring crowd". This sense of order, a result of a chaotic, creatorial turmoil, resonates as a mosaic of my recycled passions, not clamouring for perfection but satisfactorily raw. My work is a celebration of my innermost soul and l use ordinary, everyday-materials, twisting them into obedience of my desires.
