Playfully constructed images manipulating scale and visual perception with the use of plastic miniature animal figurines in various urban or cityscape backdrops. These very man made environments contradict what we would assume to be these creatures usual habitat, conjuring unexpected compositions sometimes humorous and for me occasionally touching. Curiously these inanimate objects evoked feelings of empathy and a sense of intimacy. .The images endeavour to cast the viewer back into a period of childhood when everything one experiences is a new discovery and something to be questioned while striving to tread a line between reality and fantasy while highlighting the human need to constantly label and draw visual comparisons.
