My work hints at the world of myth and folklore, exploring the relationship between humans and animals. The imagery often seems caught somewhere between childhood imagination and adult reasoning, as I gravitate towards using symbolism and allegory in my work.
The natural elements in my work are exploring the importance of the nature and our connection to it, and at the same time metaphorically dealing with psychological and emotional states. The juxtaposition of humans with other animals in my work is not intended to anthropomorphise these creatures but to highlight our origins and the imbalance we’ve created in the environment.

Through my fragile imagery I subvert traditional representation by hinting at darker consequences. The animals and plants are shattered, fragmented and vandalised. Animals are shown unnatural in their luminescence. My paintings, drawings and sculptures have an other-worldly feel. They hint at the violence in nature and the horror in folklore. I use a sensitive, soft style when depicting my subject matter, that suggests the delicate relationship between man and nature, making a clear point about man's destruction of nature, which flutters jewel-like in the balance.
