Working most often in oil paint, using personal and found photographic archive, popular cultural documentation, music, interior design and studies from life as points of reference - the area of investigation becomes the tension when a form modelled by 'Nature' interfaces a manmade form, ie. a child's head framed by fake fur or tinsel, or fire licking gingerbread. More layers transpire when the manmade mimics the natural or the natural is moulded to conform to human concepts. Primarily inert shapes and apparent spaces develop the potential for animation as the tendency to anthropomorphize comes into play.
