The aim of this project was to explore my innate interest in shelter and interiors that began as a child while playing with polly pockets and dollhouses; immersing myself in these tiny environments for hours. I'm now placing that fascination with being 'inside' into a Fine Art context and allowing my audience to access my paintings and experience this for themselves.

The naive style of my paintings is owed to them being drawn solely from memory, untainted by external reference and professionalism. The sculptural form of the places where I spend my adult life has been squashed down, almost as if it has been sat on, and becomes more complex as it contorts within the intimacy of small scale.
