Nature is something I am intrinsically drawn to in both art and life. I enjoy trying to comprehend the natural world and learning about the scientific phenomena underpinning it. This reoccurring theme has become apparent in my work which combines my fascination with the study of science with my love for art. Imposing the freedoms of visual art onto the rigid laws of physics has brought me to terms with the ambiguous beauty of not knowing. This allows me to become more forgiving of the gaps in human knowledge and embrace the universes great mysteries which we may never solve!
