My current practice revolves around ideas of personal memory, fantasy and nostalgia. The motifs of natural history tie to a broader familiarity of childhood. This sense of familiarity opens up the work to the viewer so that they can connect to their own memories and relive the feeling of childhood wonder.
In many ways my work pays homage to the rural areas which have inspired me and helps set the scene of a fairytale-type narrative. The accumulation of small-scale objects and naÏve paintings creates an eclectic aesthetic and encourages the viewer to investigate the work on an intimate scale.
