My work often focuses on the intangible, sights that can be seen but not always immediately understood. I am fascinated by natural phenomena, particularly how light and movement affects a subject. I have looked at water and glass, observing how they form, their reflections and layers of imagery. I enjoy the challenge of trying to understand and describe these visions through drawing.

I use drawing to record my experiences of a place; my fascination with natural phenomena affects my choice of subjects and what I abstract from the image, often resulting in confusing layered imagery.
