I present abstracted narratives, which make the viewer question their ideas of portraiture. In my work, I am enamoured with the concept of capturing the edge of a scene. This is in order to reveal the role that context, the presence of and the lack of, has in our lives and how it influences our perceptions and perspectives.

 I hope to encourage people to be more open-minded through my amalgamations of collage and painting with a focus upon similarities and juxtapositions existing in a large and absurd universe. Often, I amalgamate these compositions with aspects of colour, in vibrant blocks or in abstracted expressions. 

 Alongside collage, this allows me to enact a concept of doors and windows as a metaphor for the human condition and psyche. This is furthered through my practice of layering not only collage and paint but automatic drawings and writings too. This is an exploration of the unfathomable depth of contextual forces surrounding us with an idea of delving deeper whilst also being able to step back or look out at a bigger picture.
