I create intricate, life-sized sculptures of plants and insects, curating collections of them and building installations and dioramas which aim to document different species and encourage a curiosity in nature. They are made using recycled paper, wire and other reclaimed materials which are carved, shaped and sometimes embroidered to bring the sculptures to life. I view my work as a 3D record of my discoveries and experiences of the natural world. By curating collections and building dioramas I hope to inspire and inform the imagination of others, encouraging them to question what they see and the worlds I have documented.
