    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 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 in relation to identity and place . Within a discourse of endlessness, the work suggests a quest for a primal sense of home.
