In my paintings I aim to capture the fleeting and transient, intrigued by themes of transition, impermanence, discovery and identity. I'm drawn to the elements of awkwardness and vulnerability and how they are so often found in juxtaposition (or contradiction) with beauty and strength.  In other works, I'm inspired by the play of light, shadow and reflections on architecture and glass. While these represent a different subject-matter from my figurative work and portraiture, they are connected through shared themes of the passing of time and transition.
