Biography

Why limit yourself to one creative medium when you can have your choice from a world of possibilities? Or at least the world that is within one’s creative brain. Instead of focusing on one artform I have expressed myself in paint, graphite, clay, video, piano playing, poetry, collage, performance, photography… and most recently latin dance!

I feel an immense sense of joy when creating, whether visually or musically. My artist ego is fed through seeing the enjoyment my creations bring to others. With personal projects or commissioned work, from photo realistic drawings, to synthesized soundscapes for film, I find the materials to fit the project, researches historical or contemporary examples to draw inspiration from, and then take off on my own creative, heartfelt, sometimes quirky, journey.
