Artist Statement:

My current practice is focused around trying to generate an emotional connection with the audience by creating immersive environments that alter time and space.
My video installations are often all or partly autobiographical, inspired by an amalgamation of experiences and memories, dreams and nightmares, fears and fantasies.
Fluctuating at times between sinister and transcendental, I aim to draw attention to human absurdity from an existential perspective.
