Artist Statement

Connection is a series of works created over the course of 5 years. Each piece touches on the theme of connection, either with ourselves, our relationships or our communities.

Materials vary throughout the series, from use of collage, Posca markers, acrylics and digital methods. 

These works were created as a way of reconnecting with myself as an artist, exploring the possibilities of my creativity outside of my commercial pursuits. Some of the pieces in this series are reflective of my own experiences, trying to untangle the complex perception I have of myself. Others are more abstract as I work through ways of exploring what it is to be a part of a community.

Throughout my career I have been inspired by Don Hertzfeldt, Lisa Hanawalt and Pendleton Ward, as well as many other artists with a background in comics or film making.
