Painter / Digital Painter

introduction

Artist with a particular interest in science, specifically the cosmos and images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope.

My work embodies an alliance between science and art, exploring aesthetic properties found within chemistry and the cosmos. Influenced by science fiction and portrayals of space, the unseen is made visible and false landscapes are produced. I use various media to represent the images, including oil paints, oil overlaid with resin, and digital paintings finalised as LED lightboxes.
