My work is about the exploration of identity through the making of masks. It draws on my experience of having been based at the studio upstairs a therapeutic community located in the docks close to the SS Great Britain for ten years I also make film about my own subject, and relationships. I believe that there is only a certain level of personal honesty that can be reached and that it is essential to reflect outwardly  as well as inwardly. I look on my work as the peeling of an onion; it makes me cry sometimes, but still very little is understood about about that reflex.
