Practice includes painting, drawing, photography and installation. Main focus is painting, however, other media explored that may be appropriate to several recurring themes that are rooted in an interest in spatiality and perception. Paintings depict light and darkness, while photography playfully explores subtle subversions of ordinary objects and space. For example the Heterotopia series brings together notions of 'otherness' within familiar objects that allude to the body.
