" My work looks to question sociopolitical constructs and address issues around sexuality and our shared anxieties and desires. By using myself as the subject, I like to depict fantastical versions of life events and hybrids of friends and family make up the characters.
I want my work to make people laugh, that’s maybe the most important thing. Experimentation also really propels me; when it comes to painting I feel that accidents provide a lot of soul.
As well as humour I also like to have an underlying sense of cynicism in each piece I create. A successful painting for me has a distinct feeling of unrest and also something a bit perverse, whilst still allowing the audience to be sympathetic to the situation. Marrying these two emotional components is really important for me when creating a story."
