My paintings incorporate elements of both fiction and reality, and are brought to fruition through a varied means of production.

Recently, a significant focus in the work has been an exploration of the mediated image, and an investigation into the power of implied narrative. The architectural settings aim to situate the viewer in relationship with a domestic geography that is both recognisable yet hyperreal, offering a simulacra of the everyday. The scenes are furnished with patterns and motifs that serve to tropicalise the work and enforce the overall aesthetic of the fabricated image.
