My work questions the various perceived boundaries existing between representation and abstraction, western thinking and eastern consciousness. Working across analog and digital methods, I seek to combine disparate elements into harmonious compositions. I take ancient and classical themes and embed them in a contemporary context. Articulated forms become abstracted and ambiguous throughout my work. Multiple layers are built up to reveal subtlety and depth. My artwork alludes to the notion of palimpsest: a layering and obscuring of existing elements that makes room for new visual amalgamations. 

I seek to invent new processes in my practice to translate recurring themes. The methods involved are complex yet I strive for simplicity in the overall effect for each work. The viewer is invited to investigate my work, transcending the immediate and exploring deeper connections within.
