Photography: “Artistically I am driven by the need to express myself and to make a statement about the world in which we live.” This body of work, Define Revelation, consists of fine art black white prints which make a social comment on the affect religion has on society - focusing on religious intolerance, oppression, control and myth.

Believing strongly in the importance of awareness and building understanding through open communication, the main purpose underlying much of my work is to foster thought and dialogue. A mixture of installation, photography, video, books, and participatory pieces, (re)construction interrogates what is real and how we understand ourselves and each other. It further encourages visitors to go beyond being only viewers and to engage with the ideas and people around them.
