In my work I combine painting and digital collage to explore how we relate to our environment.

I begin by gathering images – photos of different landscapes, microscopic imaging of plants, computer game imagery and historical paintings. From these I create paintings and drawings which I then scan and arrange digitally. Often I also leave prints, drawings and other materials outside to degrade, before reincorporating these marks into my work.  

The resulting pictures aim to investigate the boundaries between real and virtual, natural and artificial, and hint at the unpredictable processes now at play between them.
