Artist, Technician
Early career

I am a UK-based artist currently studying on the photography MA programme at The University of Brighton. Taking the art-historical notion of the muse as a point of departure, my current work explores notions of desire, melancholy and the loved-object. The work operates in a metaphorical space, exploring relationships between photographs, found images, sculptural objects, and the narratives associations they evoke. Drawing upon a range of source material, from classical sculpture to literature, I aim to depict my subject as the archetypal lover. read full statement
