Freelance Photographer and Digital Artist
I use my work to explore subject matters that I feel I have an affiliation with and/or strong opinion about. My artistic process almost always involves me studying and testing my own opinions and gathering views from other people by observing and recording them. The journey is always far more important than the destination for me and through this process, I am constantly updating my opinions and beliefs and trying to achieve a balanced view on life.
To me personally, my work represents an opportunity to find and understand myself within the greater context of my own world. I seek answers, I ask questions, I expand my mind through creativity and hope to inspire debate amongst others.
I am very passionate about my work, I have always expressed myself creatively. I think of the whole collection of my work as a transitional biographical journey, with each project signifying a pit stop - a place I have explored.
