"I am interested in a person's conception of beauty, of perfection and the past experiences and nostalgia that formulate an individual's ideals. The mentality of representing things as they might be, rather than as they are is an escapism I often indulge in. As a result of this, a lot of my work includes my ambitions and dreams and past memories that in hindsight, I recognise as 'rose tinted' experiences. Attempting to reach a level of contentment and maintain this sense of innocence alongside everyday commitments, tasks and duties is a conflict I enjoy exploring within my work."
