About

During my seven years as a nurse I was constantly exposed to the cycle of life from birth to death and the various physical forms within that.

This led to a fascination with the beauty and complexities that the human body goes through in its lifetime.

Metalmorphosis  explored the idea of the body as a shell by layering rusty decaying metal images onto torsos.
