My work depicts in-between domains that explore both internal and external spaces. Alternating between bodies of work in the studio, cross-pollination leads to unexpected relationships and associations. Each body of work takes as its starting point an element of figurative imagery, such as grasses reflected in a swamp, or the silhouette of a swimmer. Drawing from imagery developed at residencies and from lived experience, a symbolic language has emerged through which I explore abstraction and metamorphosis.
