This body of work takes inspiration from the whimsical worlds depicted within folklore and fairy tale, creating a nostalgic space for the imagination to navigate through.
Mushrooms and fantasy creatures continue to be a focal point in my work, influenced by Manx folklore that I grew up listening to, along with fairy tales that are a relevant part of so many people’s childhoods. Traditionally, these fantastical characters were a product of the effects of ‘magic mushrooms’. So alongside depicting these mystical spaces, my practice aims to visualize the connection between the biological profiles and magical connotations of fungi.
