Play is essential to the way I develop my work, I create characters or objects and physical spaces which mostly describe my own emotional and personal state. I strive to create work that engages the audience, allowing us to fetishize our emotions into an unrealistic surreal concept of reality.
Recurring characters tend to dominate my work; this is done purposely to achieve a familiarity for each of my pieces, and creates a mood/story board behind the character created. I hope to achieve a sense of knowing this character even when placed in a different environment, or their image becomes more fragmented. To create abstraction, I isolate certain qualities of my animal hybrid creations, and exaggerate these for them to stand out.
