Prop making and Puppetry.
Leeds and Derby
"My work primarily explores the themes of alien existence, the human subconsciousness and lived experience in a digitalised world. I take great inspiration from British sci-fi predominately from the late 70s onwards, futuristic and apocalyptic sorry lines, uncanny characters, puppetry and prop making. Craft is important in my work as it allows explore outside of the digital realm, the handmade is the one thing that remains totally ‘human’ in a ever changing futuristic society. For me it represents my childhood of growing up watching a lot of cartoons, making art out of any materials I could find and spending a lot of time in nature exploring. Exploring is so important, especially in the world we live in today. "
