My practice is involved in working with mixed media. My work has looked at the relationships between objects and people. I am interested in what role art and philosophy plays in people’s lives and it’s an effect on the world at large. I am interested in the self, the interpretation of memory and the recurring trauma.

In my film work, I have created films since the start of 2007. I am interested in using film as another form of painting to tell a narrative or as a living painting. Film like Apples, I was trying to produce and sense of wonder. Whilst my film, The repeated ghost causes a sense of anxiety, a repeated anxiety. Film provides the perfect opportunity to bring life into static paintings.
