There is an interest to create from the acts of learning, observation and contemplation on the subjects of the perception of nature, the inquisition of existence and the connection between things.
My work is often interchangeable and ongoing, I have an interest in the affinities between images and text, which are often temporary and rely on subjective reactions.
The process of making, allows me to channel particular thoughts, ideas and connections through layering and assemblage, enabling me to comprehend the universe and it's objects.
Within my work I am interested in photography as an act of preserving light captured from a specific time and place.
Overall I work with small scale images, this requires a specific action by the viewer to see the images close up, therefore removing the distractions around them and creating an intimate moment between the image and the viewer.
