Biography

With its roots in the visionary nature responses of Turner, Blake and Palmer, and a musical mirrored ballerina box kept since childhood, my work explores a sense of melancholy in the transient relationship between matter and light.

Hovering between reality and unreality, I invite the viewer to find a still centre and quiet psychological territory which borders the threshold between nostalgic association and something unknown.

There is a sense of liminality which runs throughout my work.  Within a discourse of endlessness, these  hidden landscapes of my imagination and memory reveal a corresponding quest for a primal sense of home.
