My work comes from the feelings of nostalgia towards my childhood. I grew up in a very social environment, constantly surrounded by family and close friends, often round a BBQ or campfire enjoying the laughter and conversation surrounding me. This comfort I had as a child followed me into adulthood. This has inadvertently influenced my creative practise. I mainly explore the importance of this personal connection and how conversation aids in creating bonds with people, I explore these themes through an on- going series of conversations, large-scale concept drawings and writing quick proposals for a range of different socially engaged ideas, Interactive projects and performances.
