''I aim to keep an element of risk or chance in the work. I love finding the face for the first time, or a place caught in the moment. I don’t have any particular limit on subject matter, but reoccurring themes include familiar aspects of popular culture including displacement and belonging. I think it’s important to have fun and hopefully the work reflects that.''
