Artist member since 2019
My work strives to bridge the gap between the immaterial and material world to manifest a sense of the ethereal while being grounded in the familiar and scientific. An exploration of biological systems and their 'hidden' structures as seen through a microscope is reflected in my work. Inspired by a scientific understanding of nature's complexity and informed by a Christ centred understanding of reality, I am interested in visually exploring the most basic of human intuitions - that life in all its biological forms, has been thoughtfully and purposefully designed.

Mixed Media and found objects. It challenges me to use and re-purpose both traditional and non-traditional materials in new ways.
