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 ideas about identity and place.

Drawing upon the writings of Carl Jung and notions of the uncanny, inherited memory and the unconscious, my work borders the threshold between nostalgic association and something unknown.

Hovering between reality and unreality, the in-be- tween sense of place and identity is an important underlying theme to my work
