My work is always a dialogue with the manmade. Be it a text, an image or an artistic tradition, it is about re-visiting, re-interpreting and re-presenting some of the places, figures and ideas found in human culture. These I believe can be made to resonate again and again by means of a free, intimate re-creation, one that is not constrained by concerns of universality and philological exactitude. As I plunder my cultural heritage, I favour a lively inaccuracy of approach as a way of generating new traditions by distortion and proposing symbols whose meaning is hybrid, open, non-prescriptive.

Winner of the Art in Healthcare Award at RSA Open Exhibition in 2014.
