When I make a piece of art, I frame not it just within the object, but within the concept. I form a story around it, an illustration, it becomes performance art, theatre, prose, the study of the use of Red Roses throughout history, a perfume, a blend, a multisensual tapestry, a study. I become saturated with the subject and its relation to my imagination, where it can be taken. Therefore each new form it takes becomes more original, dedicated to the exploration of context of that which has gone before, so my knowledge can deepen. It is a form of self expression, but also of learning. Intellectual advancement is integral to my work.’
