Here the artist tells us about the creative process behind this project:
I was immediately struck by the fascinating topic of fungi, and how it was truly something that had never crossed my path before as a topic of conversation. The passion from the team at the Medical Research Council Centre for Medical Mycology was palpable, and I was honoured to help translate some of their work and energy into an accessible format for a wider audience – to then spark in them an equal interest in the subject.
I am an illustrator, poet, and installation artist based between London and East Anglia. The core of my work is about the everyday: it’s about people, and the hidden poetry of the world we all live in. I’m interested in the power of everyday actions and choices, and how the intricate threads of all of our lives intertwine.
