"I continually question hierarchies, relationships and behaviours and their impact on individuals and groups who are marginalised in a continuously fracturing society. My thinking is analytical and often non linear, discovering that which appears insignificant as there for a reason, peeling away layers of (mis)information, semiotics, verbal and written language to find connections and truth. Through continuous research I joint together dots."
