Statement

Through my work I am exploring ideas relating to man's relationship with nature throughout time, finding inspiration within themes of religion, mythology, poetry and literature.

I work in a variety of media, employing that which is best suited to capturing the essence of my subject or communicating a specific idea.

Prefering to explore one subject in some depth before moving onto another, I tend to work in series.
