Tell us a bit about your creative process/practice?
My artworks come together like a jigsaw puzzle, beginning as many seemingly haphazard, individual, misshapen parts, gradually coming together little by little, piece by piece, to emerge as a beautifully cohesive whole.
I look beyond the obvious, preferring to examine and explore the underlying meaning and significance of every detail.
My goal is to inspire those who see my work to look closely and explore the beauty within, not only the artwork but also in themselves. Because beauty is in all of us, even if it is sometimes found in the most unusual of places.
