La Macina di San Cresci



“Artists are interesting creatures. We can be obsessive, dedicated, spirited and single minded in our pursuit for that perfect realisation of our art. We tend to be outsiders and are often that square peg in the round hole, so when you find an oasis like San Cresci you hold on tight -- for it’s that sense of belonging which welcomes you.”

Animals have always fascinated me, and my love for all things wild appears consistently throughout my art. My interest in animals extends into the realm of myths and fairytales, exaggerations and adaptations. Recurring use of bones, claws, teeth, and fur in addition to colorful children's imagery allows me to create a sometimes playful, sometimes dark dichotomy between animals wild and tame, real and imaginary.
I like to work in traditional media such as painting, drawing, photography, and printmaking, but I enjoy juxtaposing these works with digital pieces because of the dialogue it creates between past and present conceptions of both the nature of art and the subject at hand.
