I am the by-product of the society I live in, an extract of the urban technological realm. My work utilises the digital helpers and fixers – the camera, iPhone, phone applications, edits and Photoshop. I employ the most accessible means of print technology possible today: digital print, screen print, stencil, painting and collage, on top of diverse modern papers and fabrics, such as tracing paper, inkjet paper, cotton rags, canvas, silk, satin, lycra and viscose. When printing on fabric I also use manipulations to create distressed effects, through hand dye, bleach, painting, embroidery and stitching. I use and document fractions of my reality – images of my own home, my studio and routine as well as places I visit, books I read, people surrounding me. Nothing is too precious –the daily, yet unforgettable, traces of life.
My aim is to create images that are used as a composite representation and perception of the bodies and spaces I am preoccupied with, hence articulating the affective response to their presence. This presence does not exhaust itself merely within the limits of the visual image or the shell image per se, but rather manifests itself in my work as a multi-faceted array of visuals derived from ongoing emotional experiences and sensual impressions of our mutual co-presence, i.e. physical, bodily, mental and spiritual interaction between us and the environment.

“Very Exciting work indeed. I loved the format you chose, and loved the boldness of your work. There is real sense of movement and grace. Collage is your medium, but you definitely have an eye for movement and beauty. You are creating exciting work and I am very interested to see where else you can go with it.”

” What a wonderfully creative portfolio. You obviously have a clear vision and identity that you are whole-heartedly sticking to and your efforts are great to see. I am hugely impressed by your creativity! “The Dancer” series are just breathtakingly beautiful and elegant and you’ve layered these images with a deft yet deliberate treatment that makes perfect sense. You sometimes come across photographers who try and incorporate illustration in to their images but I’d go so far to say I have hardly seen it presented better than in your work.”
