Describe what you do creatively.
I use painting to visualise (and better understand) what it feels like to experience this or that circumstance. I have made work about relationships, families and divorce, as well as more public experiences of hospitals and courts. All of it is about reflecting on what it feels like to be alive and what painting has to say about that. 

Do you identify as an artist, illustrator, designer or something else?

Do you stick to a defined stylistic direction in your work?
On the one hand yes, because I always end up making my work; there's an inevitable and unavoidable consistency in that. On the other hand no, because the work evolves across time and does what it needs to do. Those changes happen more slowly for me now than they used to, but they still happen. 

If so, describe that direction and what led to that decision.
I work a lot in a kind of mixed grey, bordering on black (along with subtle bits of colour). The grey helps me create a deeper atmosphere than earlier coloured works. Grey sits back and lets you in, it doesn't come at you like colour does. It helps me to make the paintings more intimate.

What is your relationship with chaos?
It stresses me out, but also I am terribly chaotic. Until I am not. I think my natural state is chaos because my mind runs at a million miles an hour, jumping from thing to thing. And then I switch, when I have had enough of the chaos anxiety. I wrestle things back to order. Rinse and repeat. Many times a day. 

Do you take risks or play it safe?
In how much petrol is left in my car, I am very risky (0kms is not unheard of). In general though, I'd say I'm slightly on the riskier end of medium in terms of risk (anyone who becomes an artist has some love of risk). I very much like last minute holidays. I do not like advanced meal planning and cleaning schedules. I am risk-averse in other ways, for example, I have a job and am unlikely to enrol in an improv class. 

What discourages you from being creative?
1) Lack of time; 

2) Lack of confidence;

3) Periods of sustained stress (unless that stress is an exhibition deadline then I am very 'creative', or maybe just a workhorse). 

What are you expecting from the RMXTV experience?
To feel like I am in an improv class fever dream.

What do you know about the RMX projects?
That it will be good medicine for me (and a great contribution to BAD).
