My main interests have always been drawing, nature and fairy tales. These are the three primary ingredients which I use to create my work.
By building up layers of laser cut stained plywood, I create intricate relief pieces that bridge the gap between craft, illustration and sculpture. These works are essentially drawings that have been brought off the page and into the real world as a permanent form of storytelling.
My lifelong love of stories began when, at the age of six, my sister read me The Hobbit. Since then I have always been passionate about literature that takes you to another place, particularly fantasy and science fiction. It’s always been my ambition to create an entire world, with it’s own laws, logic and nature. The natural world is my biggest source of inspiration, from sitting on the floor watching David Attenborough documentaries with my grandfather to reading about the universe in New Scientist. The forces that govern life and shape the world have always fascinated me and provide me with a basic structure to build my own.
