    'Taking inspiration from the natural world and our place within it, I carefully observe relationships between opposites. Often the animal or the animal encounter is a starting point.

    Utilizing the pathos of the collected animal, often from zoos or museums, I am fascinated by their ability to imbue stillness. Through process I accentuate this, creating an atmosphere of subtle intensity. Explored as archetypes, creatures are at odds with their environment, leading us to consider theirs and our own belonging.

    Using animal imagery I avoid sentimentality, choosing to possess the subject with an anonymity; creating a distance through which to observe.  There is a dialogue with the romantic era where imagery and process holds historical significance. I am fascinated by juxtaposition - beauty and melancholy, darkness and light.'
