My work explores the relationship between Jungian archetypes and skateboard ethics.

With influences as diverse as Derrida and Frida Kahlo, new insights are synthesised from both simple and complex discourse.

Ever since I was a child I have been fascinated by the ephemeral nature of the mind. What starts out as vision soon becomes debased into a tragedy of futility, leaving only a sense of nihilism and the inevitability of a new understanding.

As wavering replicas become reconfigured through boundaried and repetitive practice, the viewer is left with a clue to the darkness of our world...

Just kidding! I really just move the pen about the paper until I see something I like. I hope you enjoy!
