My drawings have been predominately inspired from old family photographs. They explore themes of family relationships, aloneness and isolation, memory and nostalgia, and the mysterious in nature and in urban settings.
I see my drawings as being akin to stills from an imaginary newsreel – where the camera is able to capture aspects of a world not normally visible. The medium I use is predominately graphite – in particular the 2B pencil.
Over the past few years I have been exploring more abstract themes, focusing especially on the subjectivity and dream-life of childhood, parallel worlds and the supernatural, along with the symbolism and workings of the subconscious.
