What I do
Predominantly a painter, I enjoy playing with light and scale to create intimate, poetic engagements between people and their natural environment. I make works that bring us closer to the mystical, the irrational and the sublime.
Around my creative axis spin ideas about longing and desire, and being lost or overly confined, which are concurrent with the ridiculously mundane trivia of the everyday. My time devoted to a Masters’ degree in science has allowed me to be able to blend this more logical, rigid understanding of the world with that of the mythological; crossing boundaries and producing works that I consider to be more holistic and poetic in their approach.
I also work on a number of other projects outside the realm of flowers. I am a writer, publisher and curator and travel widely, collaborating with institutions, artists and scientists around the world in their work.
