Mental health and social perception related to physical appearance, language and behaviour has always played a huge role in my artistic practice and personal life. Using traditional techniques including drawing, printmaking, collage and clay making, I am interested in manipulating perspectives and scale with positioning of people and awkward postures. Incorporating patterns, colours and textures to play with volume and depth. The work is often naive in parts, simple but bold, putting on a front, wearing a mask, translating to the vulnerability of people and the fragile nature of social acceptance and belonging.
