The work that I make is a reflection of my interest in the lives and natural beauty of animals, both domesticated and wild. Living in the countryside amongst both farm and woodland, the lives and stories of the animals and birds are always on the edge of one's seeing. The relationships we build with other animals become part of our own narratives, in folktales, fairy tales and mythologies of times past, and our own present.
