"I started painting onto found packaging about 3 years ago, and in that time I've painted onto pretty much anything you can think of - pharmaceutical boxes, candy wrappers, record sleeves, cereal boxes and even mortuary toe-tags.

By adding new painted elements to the objects that we use and dispose of every day, I'm re-contextualizing the branding, advertising and even the item itself.  I want the viewer to look twice at these disposable objects and question what it means, how it fits into their life and what their role in the endless chain of consumption is.

For me, re-purposing packaging into 'art' is not only a social subversion, but my own statement on contemporary recycling."
