I am constantly commenting or trying to solve relevant issues within my works, either in day to day life i.e. a machine that keeps seagulls at bay while you are trying to eat a fish based meal al fresco, or to more serious global problems.
My work usually involves humour. I believe that humour is one human reaction that is capable of connecting everyone. When tastefully placed within a serious subject I find that it creates a bigger impact.
I utilise whatever material best suites the idea. As a result my works can be created from anything, just depending on what I am trying to say in the piece of work.
