I am from a small coastal town in Essex. This island is the subject of the vast majority of my photography based artworks. I began delving into my relationship with my home town during my second year of university. I started this journey as I felt it gave me more perspective on the unique aspects of the town in which I grew up. Through my photography and mask making I create characters based on the personification of nature. I aim to create a sense of mystery to evoke a different story being created by each viewer of my work whilst attempting to interrogate my own more personal feelings towards a location.
