Influenced by the subtle tensions which lie within the space, light and shadow of architectural form, I intend to create a relationship between surfaces and forms that can alter our perception of space. I have used the curve to create a spatial flow between planes and lines, which disrupt and work with simple geometry.

My current work synthesises elements taken from contemporary architecture with underlying currents which unfold Baroque structures.
