About my work

My practice is strongly influenced by an ongoing interest in art as an outstanding medium of human communication and creative expression; I am particularly inspired by its ability to stir emotions and self-consciously reach out to diverse audiences as an interactive medium.

With this communication between myself and the audience in mind, I continually strive to experiment and explore the philosophical dimensions of artistic expression – which reflect my wider interest in cultural and political aspects of the social world.

I am intrigued by the way advertising and the media employ art to stir emotions and influence subconscious thought – thereby influencing consumer decision-making.

My work is heavily influenced by my political views – an aspect I try to capture in a social context throughout.
