Overview

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.

Artist Influences

 

The Dadaists and the Surrealists influenced me in my early years as their exploration of the metaphysical really inspired me. Their work has often been described as dream-like and otherworldly, as has mine. My work comes from a spiritual perspective, exploring the idea of the ‘numinous’ and the ‘sublime’. Creativity is essentially a spiritual practice for me. I use traditional techniques of drawing and painting to depict my subject matter, and have recently used incongruous materials such as wallpaper and wood as their elemental patternation lends itself to my work.
