"I’m always inspired to find beauty in everyday life — unusual plants, architecture, movies, other art, people on the street that I see, even stains and spills are all constantly generating ideas and feeding my process... My art is very much a product of my everyday life — the books I’ve read, things I’ve encountered, and the emotions I’m processing."
"There are times when I know exactly what I’m going to create and other times where I allow the piece to create itself as I go along — this is probably the most rewarding way of creating for me as chance is a very powerful co-creator."
"At root, the artist creates so as to exist within their own creation. Both art making and art appreciation are very personal, and I really believe a piece of art is only as good as the viewer. I think of my pieces as children — I put my best intentions in, but ultimately they go on to live their own lives and gather their own stories."
"I do believe that alchemy exists as a metaphorical concept— our thoughts, experiences, actions and emotions are all catalysts for creation and interpretation."
"I love colour, beautiful geometric patterns and fabrics, so I’m also working on converting elements of my work into wearable art."
"I think people are similar to gemstones in many ways. When I look at a beautiful gem, I think about my own resilience."
