My practice, like the natural world that I study, is
constantly changing and I place no restriction on
myself as to the mediums I use, I work freely between
drawing, painting, photography, film and
as 'Natures Own Cinema' . Often my work tries to pause this activity in photographs or paintings, just long enough for viewers to contemplate the moment. At other times I like to showcase the diverse and chaotic activity of natural ephemera through film. My work aims to highlight the ephemeral nature of our lives and I hope that by elevating these everyday experiences, it allows us to reflect on the natural world, and our relationship with it.
I have been experimenting with different types of natural ephemera, collecting and using plants which are abundant around Kinghorn, I have collected and used the pappus (down) from the Creeping Thistle plant,
which is normally dispersed by the wind, to create a blanket. I have sculpted an indoor landscape with this
blanket that people can walk over and decide how to treat it.
