The influences on my work come from a myriad of sources, from overheard conversations on the train, to news paper headlines or inspiring ancient art, I also love to read, often making notes, taking inspiration from favourite authors, I'll often jot these on bits of paper or make little doodles, which I will work on later. These starting points often causing much confusion and consternation at a later date when I can't remember what exactly I meant when I wrote it down!

"I want my work to reflect and celebrate the humour and tragedy, the absurdity and even sadness of our lives, and also the underlying symbiosis that makes these elements indispensable to each other, bringing together the disparate ideas observations and other influences that result in a final piece of work."
