About the artwork:

My recent work has been driven by a passionate interest in the sublime natural world and our relationship with it. Childhood can be a time of uncomplicated joy, and I was interested in the idea of keeping elements of the inner child throughout our lives, of the natural world being our greatest playground, and of nourishing our souls through time spent in nature. My images result from a rummage through the chaotic mind; a forest of dreams and preoccupations.
