Leicestershire, England.

My work is inspired by the incredible diversity of animals' physical forms. I am interested in man’s and my own individual interpretation of this throughout history and the ways in which the animal kingdom is perceived through different aspects of culture. It is the variety in our perception and logic that is formed from experiencing the animal form and how this is embellished within cultures that drives my practice.

Recent projects have taken me to places across the world to understand closer unique perceptions of wild animals within their own environments and from the indigenous people and settlers that share these places.
