About

I'm an artist / photographer based between the UK and Sweden. My work encompasses the disciplines of photography, installation and sculpture, drawing on the framework of the museum and the collector to explore themes of memory, possession, the human condition, existence and mortality. This is expressed through my creation of three-dimensional conceptual pieces.

I enjoy the challenge of bringing art to audiences by other means than the gallery wall, and my work often involves minor interactive elements- something as simple as opening a drawer for example. It is, in part, this physical involvement with my art that makes it memorable, while the secretive element of the hidden object waiting to be discovered creates a sense of intrigue and wonderment .
