As a visual artist, my work mainly involves painting, sculpture, installation and video.

I don't want to say I'm a painter. For me, the exhibition space is a big box in which I place different elements using canvas, plaster, plastic and foam. The audience becomes another element.

I don’t want to say ‘this is a painting,’ but when people come into my show they might be looking at a painting, or they might be part of a painting. 

I create a space in which you don’t know something, or you might misunderstand something. I need those inaccuracies to be a part of the work. 

In my recent work ideas of hiding and shelter, hoarding and consuming are referred to. With interpretation of my work comes falsehoods, illusions, and traps.
