My work is a personal journal of a lifelong exploration into the nature of Being, Existence and the secret worlds within ourselves. I have always held a  fascination for mythology, ancient history and mystical experience and how these affect our present-day lives on subconscious and archetypal levels. My artistic travels take a multitude of varied and often unexpected paths, from meditations on the overlooked aspects of the natural world, to symbolism derived from folklore and esoteric writings, to the mysteries of Death and Life. These explorations are informed and inspired by personal life experience, by dream states and by the discipline and work of being an Artists' Model.
