My paintings, photographs and video work are inspired by moments in life that I feel the need to documented, captured, exaggerated or created. The places I have been and the things that I have seen, all inform my imagery in terms of it's subject matter and aesthetic. Often using with my own photographic references as a starting point, I re-hash, re-appropriate and combine my images to form compositions fused with a variety of mixed media. My current focus on depicting scenes inspired by sunny California aims to evoke a particular mood of exotica and adventure, of memories that have already happened or that may happen on future travels; the final works conjure up a stylised impression of the American state. I'm influenced by the visual language and power of advertising, pop culture, graphic design, Americana, memories and dreams.
