As the domestic space is the traditional setting for still life images, I create my still life scenes in my home. I take great influence from painting and the great still life artists, such as Rachel Ruysch, and Ambrosius Bosschaert. Just as I am interested in traditional art, I am also interested in traditional photography. It is important to me that I create all my images by hand. I construct my own still life scenes, photographs with a large format camera, develop the films, then handprint the images in the darkroom. I think it is important to my work that it is all made by myself from start to finish by hand.
