I’ve always been drawn to miniatures and their ability to tell a story or evoke an emotion. Through my sculptural and photographic work with 1:160 scale figures, I explore the impact of scale and how it effects our perception of the world around us. This impact can also be found in the way we perceive ourselves in our environment.

In more recent series I have developed narrative components to accompany the works, allowing the viewer to connect with the piece on a deeper level. Using settings familiar and accessible to everyone is a key component of my work. Through this process I am able to alter the way people view everyday situations, seemingly mundane at times, and invite the viewer to think about their place in the environment by altering the scale.
