My work has stemmed from an interest in the microscopic world, looking at the origins of humans, cells and structure. Working within printmaking, sculpture and installation, my interest is making interactive pieces about things too small for human eye to pick up with the aim of encouraging the viewer to question what they are looking at.

I have been developing the idea of something being ‘unseen to the human eye’, placing it within the context of global leadership, war, political control and conflict. People have become desensitized to the reality of death and war, we see it on TV as we eat our tea. The effects of war are too remote from us so we feel nothing for the suffering of others. It is now all too easy to spread disinformation.

My work is looking at exploitation of global natural resources, first and third world conflict and control, leadership, nuclear weapons and war.
