My work looks at the process of paining exploring colour through different media. I am working on some Abstract landscapes which I have been collecting my own pigments to make my own colours – in order to paint with interacting with nature itself, however I came to prefer trying to gain an organic look through using different colour combinations of diluted down oil paints. i have tried not to think about what i am doing as much in order for it to develop.

I portray humans. Often literally but even when you cannot see them they are there. I tell stories, with few words, with lines and forms. I borrow from literature and popular culture. I use the shared knowledge and try to create something quite familiar.
I like to keep thing plain and simple.
My work is handwork. Most apparent it becomes with pieces done using handicraft techniques but the word handmade describes well my practice as a whole. For me string and needle are mediums as much as pen and paper. I use them as tools to tell my stories.
