Artist Statement: It's All Make-Believe is derived from my love for fiction and the idea of the make-believe. I strive to create stories through photographs taken on film, resulting in quixotic portraits of strange and sometimes whimsical human interaction. My work in this series is primarily inspired by my dreams and other wandering thoughts I may have, giving my images a uniquely personal yet odd quality. Growing up on the southern coast of Wales, I have always been influenced by powerful landscapes and the legends and fairytales that come with them, which is another contributing factor in the creation of my work.
