I am inspired by the depths of our modern visual language in a post-internet world, as the boundaries between our online and offline realities become blurred. My practice is greatly informed by visceral processes, where I use a multitude of painting techniques, materials and software to combine technology with painting. My style combines organic brush movements with figurative or fabricated elements. I am greatly inspired by the direction of focus, and the want to be present for the viewer and myself . I create compositions using computer programmes, sketches and memories, and other materials.

 

 The work often begins with a scene or object from life, which I add political, satirical or humorous layers often alluding to a contemporary discourse, public figure or memory. I like to blend people and places, and create narratives through the material and techniques forming the subject matter.

I also love to run, bake, and be outside!
