I am interested in recreating mundane parts of life. I paint fruit and food and sculpt pieces of our lives that would ordinarily go unnoticed. I am interested in focusing on these parts of the world because there is incredible visual detail in all that we do, everywhere we go and everything we eat, and yet so many people are bored with life as it is. I find it fascinating to look into the details of a little world or some fruit up close and pay attention to the small lines, colours and the story behind it. To me, it is those details and the stories behind them that keep life interesting.
