My work takes elements both from the horse and the human figure, and fuses the two to create a hybrid that incorporates their physical traits, and reflects on their relationship with each other. My association with the horse began at a very young age. I have drawn, painted and sculpted persistently, fragmenting the form, deconstructing it and reassem¬bling time and time again to invent the new configurations it may take while retaining some of its basic characteristics.
The inspiration comes from diverse sources - from the Centaur in Greek Mythology to da Vinci and Marino Marini.
