Thank you for visiting my new and evolving website. Much of my work revolves around DRAWING, FILMMAKING AND WORKING COLLABORATIVELY with others. I believe in the power of art to create the change we wish to see in the world. Now more than ever, I feel we need to hold a vision for a more inclusive, creative and sustainable world.

Drawing for me is a fun and meditative practice of observing the things I miss when I move too fast in the world. Many of my films are autobiographical and socio political, inspired by living on an organic farm near the sea and being connected to a diverse, community of inspiring creative people. Equality and environmental sustainability are core principles, which are integral to all my work.

 

I am more interested in a fluid creative process than in any rigid adherence to media. Ideas like seeds are foraged, germinated and fertilised before coming to fruition. Plants become drawings. Conversations and stories weave their way into documentaries and immersive installations. Though careful nurturing, grafting and cross pollinating, I believe we can create new paradigms a more kind, peaceful, sustainable and creative future.

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world”

-Mahatma Gandhi
