Inspiration for my self-initiated work often comes from my everyday surroundings of the metropolis and its relationship with the natural world. I love 50s, 60s and 70s architecture, particularly tower blocks with their form and location; this is where I also find the connection to nature and natural patterns in the environment of interest.

I have a geeky obsession with science fiction books, TV and films. I am fascinated by the play of ideologies in the utopias and dystopias of science fiction, the creation of landscapes and societies where the impossible is made possible.

My work displays a mix of strange utopian worlds and parallel universes with juxtapositions of the unexpected, playing with scale and narrative.
