My inspiration comes from many places, but first and foremost it comes from observing the natural world and how our own lives are reflected within it. Watching the cycles of birth, death and re-birth, the changing of seasons, the cycles of our own bodies and mental states all serve as the narratives behind the work. I also love looking at scientific and biomedical illustrations, and the pieces from the Art Nouveau period.
