Artist Statement

I am interested in the history, language and practice of painting, the relationship between words and images, and how popular culture, consumer products and advertising relate and also jar with so-called 'high' art.

I am interested in the process of making a painting and the construction of its history and narrative. 

I am a PhD candidate exploring ideas of 'nature', and the human relationship to 'nature' within painting, and how these ideas and visibilities are complex, corroded and corrupt.
