STATEMENT

Creating art is an innate part of my life. I am an interdisciplinary mix-media artist and much of my work is an intuitive process, which is focused on the expressive gestural impetus of media and paint. My work is driven by strong theoretical interests in literary texts, criticism, and a diverse array of modern European philosophical discourses on Ontology, Existentialism, Phenomenology and Metaphysics.
