“My inspiration comes from my experience of mental illness. I liken my process to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT): deconstructing, reconstructing, and recycling ideas.
My methodology reflects how I process information: reimagining objects, exploring all possibilities, and making something new. Breaking things down, seeing them from a different perspective and in different contexts, helps me relate to and understand them better. Play and experimentation aid my learning.
Twisting concepts and challenging perceptions of how we view the world, I deal with difficult emotions/ugly topics by attempting to unveil beauty. What constitutes beauty? Does my distortion make a subject more or less approachable/easier to digest and understand?
Exploring all possible “solutions” to a brief, adapting methods, processes and outputs according to the people I work with, location and other factors such as the elements of chance that may arise and inform the work, is what I enjoy most.”
