I began making models and maquettes a few years ago to use as compositional aids for planning paintings but I soon began to appreciate them for their own sake; worlds within worlds...

Putting models together with painted backdrops and stories start to emerge; settings for dreams to lose oneself in.

I’ve also recently used models and 3D work in animation and design projects.
