My work is fuelled by the awareness of modern-day societies growing disconnection from nature, as well as moments of beauty often go overlooked or underappreciated.

I create works predominantly through the mediums of drawing and installation, with immersive or interactive qualities.

My work is fuelled by the awareness of modern-day societies growing disconnection from nature, as well as moments of beauty often go overlooked or underappreciated. When people feel little to no connection with the natural world it becomes easier to destruct.

With a background in printmaking my attention is often grasped by qualities of alignment and layering. I tend to work in monochrome, due to my love for stark contrast, and quiet drama.

I have always had a fascination with the overlooked, underappreciated, seemingly banal aspects of nature. Fleeting moments that are often missed, namely those which involve sunlight. I have been intrigued with making works based on the phenomenon of perception, how people perceive their surroundings, what they consider to be worthy or not worthy of their time/appreciation.

I aim to reconnect the viewer with the natural world, to allow them the time and contemplative space to slow down/ be still and appreciate fleeting beauty.
