Artist’s statement

My work explores how ideas and beliefs are formed. Focusing on universal issues, the audience is presented with the frustration of questions without answers. Why is religion such an integral part of life? When does society give us the freedom to make decisions and choices? I have incorporated elements of the art of Kara Walker, Len Lye and Marie Taylor: silhouette images, expressive abstract ink drawings and experimental film-making, combined with minimalist soundscapes and the flowing spiritual aspects of calligraphy within Zen philosophy, are all integral aspects of my practice.
