  • Biography
Inspired by the archaic and ancient, landscape, journeys, dreams and the ordinariness of the everyday, I aim to create and simplify timeless themes; fragmented narratives of past and imagined lives where the complexities are stripped back to search for a kind wordless essence. Ideas of human existence and of being human in a saturated world.

The stillness of a moment captured in time, memories no longer one's own but that have a connectivity to a universal other. Figures in a landscape, often more suggestive than representational: displacement or a place found, intimacy, alliance and the unique psychological space that we each encompass. An interest in the conscious/unconscious elements of the mind, world beliefs, myths and symbolism contribute in creating objects and compositions, while the physicality and process in the making unearth new possibilities through textures, layering and the use of colour.
