Artist’s statement

'Art is a deliberate re-creation of a new and special reality that grows from our response to life.’ Using different mediums has allowed me to create a work that embodies these diverse aspects of life. I was also able to discover the relationship between subject and style through the use of the repeated image coupled with varying techniques: from spontaneous use of line, to a more detailed analysis of light and shape. My artwork has allowed me to explore the concepts that define my view of life, my art-making practice and 'the dance we do’, the rhythms of life.
