The realm of folktales is at once familiar but strange, populated by symbolic flora, fauna, and colours. My work explores the nature of myth- who gets to create a myth? Why do some species and colours carry more weight, their symbolism transcending individual cultures? 

Deeply rooted in the countryside surrounding Oxford in the Vale of the White Horse, I start with the careful observation of the land, its dreams and inhabitants. The intricate prints made are a response to this intimacy with the landscape, which I inhabit mentally and physically.
