Tell us about yourself.

I am a photographic artist creating narrative works, which are designed to elicit a sense of the familiar and emotional connection. Often creating images within a wider exterior setting, I believe that stories are told as much by the context as by the intimate, human moment contained within the scene.

What can the audience expect of your response to the theme?

My work addresses the theme with a scene depicting a moment between two young people, in which a question and an awaited answer hang heavy in the air. It is from a series, An Internal Rumour, exploring the evanescence of dreams and memories and our capacity to mingle the two.
