Statement

An emerging fine art photographer exploring themes of wilderness, folklore and escape.

My work is inspired by the memory of childhood, folklore, storytelling, and representations of fantasy in contemporary popular culture. I explore themes of wilderness and escape, driven by a need to unplug from an electronic society that increasingly pushes us away from the natural world, a way to escape from a world dominated by screens. In using the screen to craft a vision of my own escape from it, so I find the process begins all over again.
