"My work was influenced by the observations of renowned theorist Carl Jung and through him I’m drawn to depicting states of the unconscious self and the conscious self. Being classically trained towards representational subjects, the transition towards the painterly or symbolic was a slow journey. The most common themes in my work are portraiture and painting on three dimensional objects.
Human faces carry in them both tangibility as something material and the depths of irrationality. I found my fascinations in the waking subject and the sleeping subject for the messages they revel because both states are related to the sensations of having dreamt. These moments of dreaming are private, mystical, intuitive and persistent."
