I draw inspiration from botany, horticulture, entomology and taxidermy. Whilst we often only get to view a fleeting moment of nature, through my hybrid creations I aim to create something of more permanence that can be observed at any given time - Flora and fauna bloom and decay in painterly gestures, arrangements of petals float seamlessly in placid space. Fusing the past, present, and the ambiguous future of these together highlights the beauty alongside the mundanity that occurs throughout their natural life circle.

My limited edition prints and originals juxtapose the beautiful with the morbid, offering euphoric moments emerging from stark backgrounds graced with fragile flowers to instances of despondency, often dark in appearance, yet remaining equally as elegant.
