"I am interested in how an image functions when reduced to a level that oscillates between abstraction and figuration. A point where a picture can exist on two levels simultaneously, as an image as well as an abstract composition.
The surrounding urban environment of London and Bristol inspires me. I often incorporate elements that hint to a contrasting setting, such as the familiar landscape of my previous home in Cornwall, or my Indian heritage. Architecture and nature are always strong visual themes within the work. In this I try to form a constructed landscape assembled of re occurring pattern and motif."
