My intent in Sunlight dwells in the familiar is to celebrate everyday life through a joyous array of vibrant colours. As beings that thrive on variety, it’s natural to become jaded and uninspired in our daily routines. We look forward to events outside the ordinary as an escape from the mundane. My body of work challenges the viewer to admire the beautiful little pockets of sunlight that dwell within their own familiar setting, to be present and recognise the excitement and growth that can be found today, whether you are in a place of familiarity or uncharted territory.
