Artist Biography

As an artist, I have a rather eclectic background, with qualifications in both genetics and organisational psychology. Yet, each of these disciplines shares a common curiosity in how simple elements come together to form a complex whole and how emerging structures adapt to suit the context of their environment.

My work explores this movement from simplicity to complexity and particularly how it connects to the invisible world of proteins within us.
