Artist Statement

My work concerns the politics of visibility in photography and digital art and the relationship of people, place and space. I characteristically use heavily saturated colour and strong contrast and I like to explore different forms of digital painting. I also print on a variety of materials to accentuate effects (e.g. aluminium; fabric).
