Can you tell me about your practice? How do you get started on a piece of work?
I start by preparing the canvas, then I start adding layers, painting on it and finally finish by adding stitching.
Who or what are your biggest influences?
Exploration and examination of human behaviour and the shared histories of cultural ancestry runs through your work, can you talk further about this?
The choice of materials is very important. The stitches in the paintings for example, I use them to suggest the idea of bringing broken parts together, like a doctor stitching body parts together after an accident. Putting layers in my work is like layering history, and it creates a sculptural effect.
My roller, without it, I always feel lost.
Finally, is there anything new coming up that you would like to tell us about?
Yes I am planning work for Art Basel (unlimited section), solo shows with Barbara Thumm gallery and Pippy Houldsworth, and Frieze London.
