“As well as exploring the medium itself, my silkcreen work draws together my interest in the natural world & anatomy with symbolism & the occult psyche.”

“My relief print work is currently focussed on multi stage lino cut. I illustrate natural fauna with a respect for accuracy while celebrating emotionality and the quality of the printing meduim.”

“ I became interested in taxidermy in 2010 and realised it could become a key component in the sculptural practice I had been emersed in. I began working towards realism in my hand crafted animal mounts and now I have turned this skill towards incorperating a conceptual artistic process in my taxidermy. 

Though I’m now engrossed in exploring the application of taxidermy in my art and the intersection of art and craft themselves I still keep up with a more traditional practice of taxidermy. I take commisions through my Etsy shop.”

“Sculpture, performance and space itself have always seemed like the same artistic material to me. Audio then adds another layer of immersion. The narratives that emerge from the intersections of the senses are always more potent than when things are isolated”

“I created the Mantid Snip Shop in 2016 as a home for my screen printed, sew-on patches and T-shirts. 
Initially an outlet to explore the graphical side of my creative process and to produce low cost artworks to support myself,
it also provided the means to persue my carreer as an artist!
So check out my Etsy shop and see if you can’t find something to adorn your Battle-jacket or jeans!”
