As an artist working in a time of crisis, I use my practice to understand the science that underpins life. Through the use of a wide range of media, I explore scale, interconnectivity and ways in which humanity is a meeting point between microscopic and global scales.

My work is informed by scientific phenomena such as symbiosis, decomposition and cell evolution. It weaves and layers distilled information with my perceptions and interpretations of life around me.

Currently I am investigating the fungal kingdom: specifically, mushroom mycelial networks and how their inter-connective forms of existence relate to the human story.
