My practice is an exploration of drawing and mark making.

With each mark being thoroughly considered and drawn to the specific requirements of every individual element of the work; to suitably represent the structures and form the composition. The lines and marks culminate to construct a fictional, science fiction dystopia of a mechanical world that mimics the precision and the calculated drawing style that has produced it.

Narrative is immensely important in the work, as it entices the viewer’s eye to explore the otherworldly expanse presented to them, creating their own story and understanding of the vast setting.
