Lives and works in London.
What brings me to making is a desire to be part of an idea, to gain an understanding and to find a form which embodies it. It fascinates me how ideas can be distilled into something very simple, an essence of being. I work across media but primarily with drawings, photographs and sculpture. Themes have evolved from landscape, with which I have a strong connection, to end of life- and family relationships.
