Biography

My work aims to explore and document the representations of identities and space. The notion of discovery is central to my practice. The materials I use are sourced from local people and places. The painting process is influenced by the natural patterns that emerge from these materials. Pen and ink allows me to capture and build upon the latent details discovered in the object.
