Artist Statement

All of my paintings source imagery from a digital archive of historical medical content collected personally over 17 years. Medical history, particularly that of infectious disease, has been a lifelong obsession of mine and I strive to channel this through my work. I am fascinated by the way illness and injury can contort the body and change the features. Fragility of the human form is an uncomfortable reality and the smallest of microbes can irreversibly alter our physical body beyond recognition. My practice is continually searching for new ways of interpreting such transformations through paint.
