My work focuses on structure and perception: from the architecture we inhabit to the building blocks of reality, I contemplate the interaction between these structures and our thought processes. I explore the connection between internal and external worlds, often using domestic imagery to represent human experience. I use the built environment as a means to suggest tension between opposing forces and contrasting states of being. I am interested in the structures we rely on to feel secure, or that distract us from feeling the opposite.

Past projects have been mainly photographic, created using both traditional film and digital equipment, manipulated via photographic software and exhibited as prints and projections. After spending a number of years working primarily in digital photography, I began to explore printmaking, working with photopolymer etching and linocut. I currently work across a range of media, including photography, printmaking and painting.
