Welcome

I usually work with paper, constructing sculptural pieces from it, printing on it or making books from it. Books and magazines feature heavily in my work but I also recycle other discarded materials to form installations, bringing a new life and meaning to them.

 

My artwork is based on repetition and is inspired by pattern and shape found in nature. I feel compelled to work in multiples, which I use to mimic life, growth and regeneration. The processes involved in making my work are as important if not more important sometimes than the finished product.

 

I focus most of my attention on environmental issues and use my art practice as a platform to reflect my concerns of our consumption and environmental responsibility, often recycling discarded materials to produce a response.

A little video of a piece of art I created last week. Tree Pores is inspired by my apple tree and the beautiful patterns created by the pores in the cross sections of trees

I started out as a watercolour landscape and cityscape artsist before going to college to first take a foundation course and then to graduate from Wirral Metropolitan College with a first class BA honours degree in fine art in 2009. I then continued to develop my practice at the same institute on the fellowship program for a further year before working independently as an artist.

 

I exhibit regularly, show work regionally, nationally and internationally. Within my art practice I also usually work on community based projects & run workshops although due to our current situation I am venturing into showing work through online films.
