I produce contemporary 2D and 3D outcomes by using a combination of different, often traditional methods and techniques. My work is influenced various street artists, and also shapes and growths seen in nature and decay. I am inspired by the transition of street art escaping the frame in the gallery to developing a new life and a new audience existing outside the conventional exhibition space constraints and vice versa. I find the placement of art within the environment very appealing, and also how this affects the viewers’ opinion of it. After examining the relationship of the artist with his or her work and comparing it to that of the relationship between someone who has a religious faith in a God I developed a curiousity about certain aspects of religion, and in icons and the themes of faith and belief. I see art as a very powerful tool and believe in it just a religious person believes in a God. Similar shapes can be seen throughout both my 2D and 3D work. This has evolved, and will continue to, by using a playful, light hearted and experimental approach to achieve fresh and honest outcomes. Personally, I find the actual making of the work therapeutic and relaxing. I aim to communicate this feeling and share it with my audience through the images and forms created. I listen to a lot of music as I create the work so the ceramics and prints often reflect the rhythms.
