Through drawing and painting, and with nature as its core subject, this work is an exploration of how changing the context of something can alter how it is perceived. The work is influenced by the concept of synthetic biology, but whereas scientists are altering nature at a biological level with unknown consequences, I  manipulate it through colour, scale and juxtaposition. I make things which would not normally sit together in reality, do so on the same surface, making, what at first glance seems plausible and recognisable become less familiar with prolonged looking

 Using macro photography or a microscope to look at elements in nature which are often overlooked, ignored and often invisible to the naked eye,  and then manipulating these elements the work becomes digital and man-made and nature is altered in a way it will (hopefully) never be in real life.
