Artist Statement

My practice is strongly influenced by science and explores notions of identity and individuality through repetition often juxtaposing microcosim and macrocosm adjusting as if with the lens of a microscope. 

I am attracted by the everyday made beautiful, by the infinitesmal that surrounds us, the world within a world, invisible to the naked eye. My work aims to provoke uncertainty in the viewer, to tease their cognitive senses by simultaneously revealing and not revealing. All about perception, the visual overwhelms analysis, the 'how' or 'why' relegated, as the art invites the viewer into a silent dialogue with it.
