These pieces centre around wordless retellings of folktales and the landscapes created by them, focusing on the weird and wonderful descriptions found in both ancient and contemporary stories. My pieces rely on colour, shape and composition to build wordless narratives that viewers can interpret in their own way.
My picture book revolves around the story of a lonely tiger, who feels like he doesn't belong. By walking through the forest and meeting lots of different characters who all find something in common with him, Tiger learns to accept himself and realises he doesn't have to change himself to fit in.
Having grown up in the countryside before living in cities, my main body of work comprises of the landscapes I loved growing up. Within these pieces, I draw on my knowledge of folktales or exaggerate the natural elements to contrast with my urban own surroundings.
