My sculptural work explores a universe populated by anxious creatures trapped in a world of bumbling science and human fallibility. They are inspired by historical hoaxes, old museums, cabinets of curiosities and pre-Linnaean taxonomy.

By capturing them both in their “natural environments” and in taxidermy and diorama inspired “trophies” and mounted plaques, I also explore the notion of early colonial era museums, their often horrific collecting practices, and the human compulsion to own beauty.
