  • Biography
I make work that explores, questions and speaks intimately of my connection to, and experience in, the landscape.

I am interested in the interaction between humans and the natural world. How we, from an individual and a wider societal perspective, seek to create some kind of stability, assurance or control, within the seemingly unpredictable or unknown forces of nature.

Moving pools of fluid paint around the canvas, I considered the ebb and flow of the sea. I remember walking on the shore, the sun sinking beneath the horizon, and trace the journey in pattern and marks through the shifting hues.
