Underwater landscapes are integral to my work. As a regular sea swimmer who frequently uses a snorkel to swim I have a distinctive visual perspective. My work represent the memories, dreams and that other world I enter when I swim. Personal narratives, mythologies and family stories are central to my  work..  My objective is to give the viewer an appreciation of the ocean whilst also considering the fragility of the ocean’s eco system.

Essentially elemental, my work incorporates earth, air, metal, fire and water, the first four elements are integral to making of the forms the fifth to inspiration.
