Artist, Technician
Early career

I am a UK-based artist currently studying on the photography MA programme at The University of Brighton. Taking the notion of 'mythopoeia'—the practice of creating fictional mythology—as a point of departure, my current work explores notions of desire, loss and loved-object.

Drawing upon a range of source material from classical sculpture to literature, the work operates in a metaphorical space, exploring relationships between photographs, found images, sculptural objects, and the narratives associations they evoke.
