Now more than ever we need to use our imaginations, to be critical and curious of the world around us.
As a socially engaged artist I seek to create dynamic spaces where ideas can be shared and paths to the horizon explored together.
Art offers an opportunity to turn research into delight.
Do contact me to discuss purchasing artworks, exhibitions, commissions or proposals for collaborative projects. I look forward to hearing from you.
