Tell us about the work that you have submitted.

The figure depicted is a self-portrait in an ambiguous space.

How do you describe your work and practice?

I consider my work to be an analytical exploration of human perception, experience and spirituality.

What motivated you to apply to the XL Catlin Art Prize?

In the seemingly abstract-dominated art world, this was an encouragement to my practice as a figurative artist.

What themes regularly resurface?

Psychology, phenomenology and spirituality are constant themes in my work. I am fascinated by the make-up of the inner self and by engagement with a spiritual realm.
