Multi-awarded experimental artist
This is My Story
In my practice I determine to amuse and challenge my audience with opportunities to reflect upon themselves and the social world in which they live. I use sculpture, painting, and printmaking as a means to express a continuous and passionate investigation of nature and humanity.
My preference is not to state the aim of my work, thereby leaving it completely open for the spectator’s personal interpretation.
