Artist Statement

Inspired by the natural world and our place within it, I see my work as being a careful observation of the relationship between beauty and melancholy, darkness and light. The imagery and processes that I use are in dialogue with the romantic era and nineteenth century naturalism. Working with the language of painting and photography, I find that the mediums inform each other. Often the animal or animal encounter is a starting point for me. I continue to be engaged with the contemporary artists’ role in cross-disciplinary collaboration, and have worked with NGOs and conservationists on international projects, highlighting and responding to environmental concerns. My interest in this area has informed extensive Independent travel and has led to a further engagement in the tradition of natural history exploration.
