Stories are the main inspiration for my work, ranging from novels to fairytales

I like the challenge of taking familiar stories and reinterpreting them in new ways, which helps maintain interest in them as well as preventing classics from appearing outdated. I also like to experiment with materials, textures and techniques within my work to find new ways of creating imagery. Usually I begin by using traditional materials, which I later combine with digital elements to explore further possibilities before making any final decisions. This allows me to produce work which has a hand-made quality whilst being unrestricted by materials.
