"Whilst creating images brings me unparalleled pleasure, the main reason behind my painting and drawing is simply to keep my sanity. Most of the works I do are inspired by popular, nostalgic, likeable, pornographic or otherwise fetishised images which capture and hold attention. By recreating these images in medium such as painting or in various drawing techniques, I am able to explore the elements from which they are constructed and to expand the meaning of an image through my own stories and interpretations. I see my work as a kind of language created for the purpose of sharing phantasmagories with other people, by taking visual stimuli from my surroundings and adding my own meanings to them, trying to establish communication with other people through image but without insisting on a particular meaning."
