"My practice explores the fluidity of time - its subjectivity, instability and transience. I am interested in the way in which we perceive and experience time and space, in what is a perpetual state of becoming."
"I use portraiture as a way to track my own changes and explore painting my perception of other people."
"My work investigates how institutionalised ideas of Black and African authenticity can be deconstructed and challenged by means of juxtaposition through a variety of mediums, more particularly with alternative photographic processes, installations, sculptures and new media."
"My creative practice explores the effects of over consumption on our living world. I use waste that I collect from beaches and waterways to create complex collages."
"I work with live sittings to develop expressive portraits of people in the communities I engage with, capturing facial features, characteristics and mannerisms."
In 2019 Northern Beaches Artist Studios invited its past studio artists to exhibit their work in a large curated exhibition 'Replay: Celebrating Five Years of the Creative Space'. Discover more about Northern Beaches Artist Studio artists through the exhibition catalogue.
