If I had to pinpoint three areas that I enjoy working in the most, it would be the figure, pattern, and greyscale. Whenever I am looking at the work of other artists, it is these subjects that always catch my eye first, and what inspire my own ideas.
In my figurative work I am interested in dance and movement, not just in the obvious subjects like the dancers but also in the way I draw them and the media I use to create the work. I have experimented with collage and surfaces in some of the pieces, but I do also have a fondness for a simple pencil drawing.

I love creating the intricate, slightly obsessive designs in black and white, and from there I started to take the work in a 3D direction with quilling techniques. Most recently I have got myself a pyrography pen and am now experimenting with pattern on different surfaces.
