The area that interests me is our relationship with the urban and the natural world.  The semblance of control that humankind has over nature: The impact of which has led to the increase of natural disasters.  It appears that we need a relationship with nature for our physical and mental well being, whilst we simultaneously screen ourselves from or commodify any direct experience.

In recent years I have moved from painting, where I explored the contemporary relationship with the romantic landscape, to social engagement, installation and ceramic work where I continue to work in the liminal space of artifice and nature.
