My artworks directly generate from personal concerns and experiences. They aim to visually articulate various senses of feeling disconnected or isolated whilst in the company of others. An unsettled sense of place and location is central to the ideas, a suspended animation, as the canvas becomes the stage; all eyes seem erratically focused on the individual caught in an ambiguous yet oddly familiar situation with a self-deprecating humour.
