Using recycled paper, fabric and wire I try to capture the delicate detail and beauty of nature. Influenced by plants, insects and found objects, I create intricate, life-sized sculptures and arrange them into collections and dioramas. I have always been fascinated by the natural world and for me my work is very nostalgic, taking me back to my childhood and the curiosity that fueled my creativity. My work aims to encourage curiosity and promote an awareness of the environment. I want to bring the small, hidden and overlooked details into the public eye and encourage people to consider their importance..
