I have always been interested in the complexities of the human psyche and have probably an unhealthy interest in the darker and more tragic side of human nature.

I am interested in the paring down of information, providing only the minimum to trigger associations or recollections. My work requires the imagination of the viewer for completion and therefore meanings or narrative remain ambiguous.
