I'm a world-taught artist, learning from evening/weekend classes, art materials suppliers, fellow artists, beings, things and events of the world. My earliest works are paintings and sculptures, often, personal responses to events in life and observations of the mundane. I started printmaking at around 2007; it was tomato plants and waste materials that have finally inspired me into being an artist in 2020 and calling myself one in 2021. Formally trained as an engineer and as a healthcare designer (with research work on participatory speculative design), these disciplines remain an important part of my work - as points of departure and as points of reference.
Materially, I work in the medium of printmaking, installation and design-games and deliver research, workshops and happenings. Working with tomato plants and waste materials, we examine dominant narratives and explore signals of more-than-human care and belonging.
