Personal Statement
Art, particularly illustration and design, is my life’s passion. I enjoy researching the diversity of people; their cultures and lifestyle, which is manifested in my work. I have a particular interest in Middle Eastern culture and art - the distinct colours, traditional motifs and original style. I use photography, wood carving, collage and screen printing in my pieces to enhance and convey meaning, and give my work a unique and dramatic quality.
Currently residing in England, I am interested in projects here and also in other countries.
