me

Imagine fantastical worlds colliding with reality

My work is inspired by wild life, especially birds in their environment, and the nature of things in everyday life. 

Repetitive pattern and shape, particularly dots dominate my work. I am obsessed with dots and see them everywhere, in everything. The work explores my connection with the world we inhabit, it is an expression of my reality but also my imagined world. Intricate and delicate forms intertwine in my work, just as my reality and my imagination blend.

 Once I start a piece it consumes me, I become obsessed and transfixed by it. Through this process a part of me is embedded in my work.
