From the beginning of time artists have always looked to the natural world to depict their great creation stories. In essence, my own work continues to draw on this tradition but has more particularly been inspired by how we currently understand the evolution of life through contemporary science's metaphors and explanations.

For as long as I can remember I have also been intensely fascinated by the animal kingdom with its profusion of shapes, forms, colours and patterns. As a sculptor I have co-opted these attributes into my work but more specifically have focused on the ever-changing relationships between humanity and the rest of nature.
