The unique narrative language of sequential art has inspired my works as fine artists for the past 10 years. My artwork is almost always about the conversation each image has with the others in an exhibiting space. When I work on and exhibition I will consider a sequential narrative and grow a story working form one image to the next. I share a love for comic styles and techniques with graphic novel artist. Although my output is different to a comic book artist, I channel my influence through fine artists media. I would call my exhibitions, walk-in Graphic Novels, but sometimes my stories develop into contained window frames or a series of frames.
The simplicity of the everyday can be a great source for imaginative adventure. I enjoy understanding what it means to be honestly, present. Stories unfold around me in the everyday and I use this in my work. For instance, I once record my daily walks through the city and park forests, later my experience of the walk grew into a narrative exhibition of artworks about a forest oasis in a big city like Johannesburg.
In another other example, commuting in traffic, is a life experience that is endured by myself and my friends and coworkers. By being mindful during heavy traffic one day, I found some interesting thoughts in my mind. One of those thoughts was that in traffic, people share different experiences in the close space at the same time during rush hour. I then wondered what it be like to see a commute through someone else's perspective. I asked a barrister from Zim to help me out with a visual experiment. He worked across the road from my studio, he agreed to record his journey from work and home for a week. From his reference I drew new images, I created a collage narrative with my own understanding of his journey.

My other interests I use in my creative practices are:

Taking what is boring and and changing it into something interesting.
Imagination, experimentation and play.
Honesty of thought being transfer through drawing and mark making.
Unique personalities and moods found in lines and colour choices.
Sketchbooking and idea mining.
Inventing games.
Sharing ideas.
Discovering different methods of storytelling.
Readers imagination space between sequential images.
