As an artist I work with the elements of colour, texture, line and form. I sculpt, digitize, animate and play. Essentially I manipulate light and space, presenting work left open to interpretation and interaction. Inspired through years of travel and an empirical interest in anthropology, using the creative process inherent within art to navigate what I believe to be an increasingly complex world. I encourage you to spend time, to engage, to continue the journey I have begun with these few simple marks and manipulations.
