'As a result of my interaction and personal experience of urban spaces I aim to create ‘other worldly’ environments to which the viewer can escape. Through the lineage of suggestive elements, I invite the viewer to immerse themselves within the framing of a narrative structure, to be involved and enticed by the visual imagery. Using books allows me to negotiate, understand and document London more clearly and translate it into drawing.'
