Statement

Coming from a background in architectural conservation, I am naturally drawn to buildings, especially  those that have stood the test of time. It is often what I observe in the urban environment that inspires me to create. Buildings and cities tell stories and I feel the need to be an interpreter in some way: recording places and collective or personal experiences, but also making visible abstract or intangible things. I love the storytelling potential of art, spending time with colours and engaging both mind and hands. Through my creative journey I have discovered that I am by nature a builder, whether with bricks or images.

My work has evolved into a combination of being illustrative and observational, while also being grounded in the philosophical and conceptual. Every new series plays with perspective, fragmentation and/or scale, referencing our inability to oversee and process the vast scale at which cause and effect happens in the world we build.
