Delving deep into the city of Belfast at night, I navigated through the industrial, commercial and residential areas, and found myself drawn to those dark and often disquieting spaces now illuminated by domestic lights, street lamps and neon signs. While aesthetically alluring, these unnoticed areas of the urban landscape, where light and darkness collide, can suggest a sense of social isolation in the city.

I work with a range of media such as painting, drawing and photography. I aim for my work to be layered, both visually and conceptually, providing the potential to portray numerous narratives to the viewer, varying widely depending on their perspective, past experiences and background in life, and for the subject matter to be viewed in a wider context beyond the frame of the image.
