Taking my lead from the image, I explore internal landscapes. I see the creative process as one in which the human is decentred. That is to say, the artist is not in complete control of the work but rather engages in a dance of agency with various other actors: the materials, the image, the imagination, and indeed the viewer. So my work is open-ended, using visual ambiguity and poetic hints to provoke dialogue. Each image acts as a sort of selective mirror in which the viewer sees aspects of themselves reflected as meanings and associations.
