Artists Statement:

I create work that is based on the urban landscape in which I live. I have been fascinated by the representation of the figure to relay messages of urban squalor, citylife, survivors and victims of urbanisation. I am interested in how the city offers an array of aspects of life - exploitation, forced migration, various encounters and passing scenes as if from a film storyboard.

The medium of scratch lithography has allowed me to use fresh, expressive lines & work spontaneously with each line building the image and each line being important expressive mark. On the other hand experimenting and pushing the boundaries of traditional lithography & am fascinated by accidents that one discovers through this new medium.
