My main source of visual inspiration is the human form. I’m most attracted to subjects that are natural and convey strength and resilience. By focusing on the emotional expression of the human body, I create a narrative about its connection to our psyche. 

My work explores themes of duality, distortion and uncertainty to draw a contrast between conflicting elements. Purity and falseness, real and unreal - I aim to highlight how duality works to create a whole. My goal is to encourage the observer to be curious, open-minded and expansive about how we decide what to accept as "right" and truthful.
