In my work I am exploring the influences of cultural traditions and socio-economic pressure on humanities modes of creative expression. How objects change over time to better suit their usefulness or how contrasting cultures can converge in a single image, is of constant fascination to me. What continues through my work is the influence of time on objects. How an object manifests after years of use and re-adjsutments to better suit the current needs of it’s user.
