My practice embraces abstract, representational and surreal approaches to explore ideas of biophilia, sentience and ephemerality. Intrigued by colour and mark-making, my
works interlace paint, ink, pastel, digital/photographic media, recycled detritus etc... I tease out biomorphic forms through a process of quiet observation and spontaneity; contemplating the tension between human impulses and ecological fragility. Final works ponder extinction in the Australian landscape.
