Artist statement.

Love is an atavism, but I like to feel feral.

I take my inspiration from observing my surroundings and I make sure to surround myself with things which inspire me: the simplicity of nature's rules, and humanity's place within them. I’m exploring everything from brute realism, symbolism, through to memories from recurring dreams.
