My themes are eco-centric and for some time I have been inspired by the natural sciences. Running alongside is an interest in scientific debates about consciousness.

I have always used a variety of methods and materials to be creative, in particular traditional media, but more recently digital art.

My working process involves experimentation and then planning. There is also an intention to coax out multiple readings of my images and marks – known as pareidolia. By including some ‘hidden’ elements I hope to reward the patient viewer, and my intention is to add layers of meaning to the subject matter.
