About the Process
Life pumps through me so intensely that the only way I can process it is by making art. My work comes from the intensity I feel from being alive. For me, life is not inspiration for art it is a compulsion to make art. As a child my grandmother said to me “You are just like me, you take a bite out of life.” But I don’t just want to bite life, I want to smash it and rub it on my face! I approach my materials in much the same intense way I experience life by never restricting how I work or what I work with. I work purely from a gut instinct. Whether it be found objects, unconventional materials or traditional materials my work is a visceral expression of life. Making art is my way of processing memories, emotions and experiences in a chaotic world.
