Through an exploration of perspective, complexities, and scientific multidisciplinary collaborations, I create imagery that explains, reveals and connects us consciously to the ambiguous and unknown.

I was born in Pembrokeshire, Wales and the geological landscape and biological make-up of the area have subliminally influenced my work. I have had a career in geology, microbiology and life sciences. I’ve worked as a scientist, entrepreneur and an artist. And I’m now working in what I called the 'Grey Space' in-between those disciplines. The science – and understanding the science – is key. The science supports the project, and then the art steps in to explain the emotion, ambiguity and the unknown. Using digital, analogue photography, video and cameraless experiments, the work has naturally developed in a fine art form.
