I hope to bring together through visual communication a multi-disciplinary approach, to encourage collaboration between science and art in a binary way. I consider my work to be fine art photography, but wouldn't like to be confined by its definition. I work more instinctively than methodologically, some say this could be too free, too disorganised. I will let you decide.
'I focus on the tension between the personal and the universal, between reality and the imaginary and between photography and other disciplines'
I have enjoyed a multidisciplinary career in the sciences and more recently in the arts. I have been lucky enough to run my own businesses, be creative and innovative in my own environment. I am looking forward to exploring in more depth, art-science collaborations and where a portfolio of work will take me.
