I aim to produce thought-provoking, figurative pieces, which may appear whimsical on first sight but may mask a darker or hidden meaning. Inspired by old toys, fairy tales, memories and observations, the work, which often evokes a sense of familiarity and nostalgia, carries a loose narrative which invites interpretation.
