My interests include aesthetics and the capacity of art to generate reflection regarding environmental challenges in the tropics. Beauty and the eco-sublime are investigated in my creative works as strategies to articulate my concerns for the preservation of the tropical environment and to create a haunting message. 

 My research interests extend to technical realms, including: optical colour mixing, mesmerizing patterns, appearance retention in carpet design and the impact of visual images on people’s moods.
