Thematic/contextual information

Inspired by Psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott's Squiggle Theory, my work is deeply motivated by the role of the subconscious and places importance on carefree aspects of squiggles and mark-making. My practice is predominantly 'playing' with materials, process and primitive techniques, it utilises the 'formlessness' of the squiggle: the subconscious guiding the foundation for visual production.
