There are two main elements that come together in my work, humans and the natural world. I am interested in the relationship of humans and nature, I have considered the symbolism of birds and how they are seen as souls and symbols of life and death. Through research into folklore, traditions and religious texts, it is clear to see that certain birds carry with them many symbols, they possess a power which many dream of - flight. My focus is on the overall symbolism of birds, particularly viewing them as souls making their way to life after death.
