I usually work with paper, constructing sculptural pieces from it, printing on it or make 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. I often recycle discarded materials to produce a response.

I graduated from Wirral Metropolitan College with a first class BA honours degree in fine art in 2009 and I continued to develop my practice at the same institute on the fellowship program for a further year. Since then I've been working independently between my home studio and my space at Alternator studios in The Old Bakery, Birkenhead. I exhibit regionally, nationally and internationally. Within my art practice I work on community based projects & run workshops. If you would like to ask any questions please refer to the contact page.
With only a few workshops to go it's getting close now to installing the Fallen Oak Leaf Project at the Williamson Art Gallery. I have been working with the community as Artist in Residence at Prenton High School for Girls and in assocaition with the Wilfred Owen Commemorance in the lead up to the centenary of the end of World War 1.
Over October half term I will be running the final workshop at the Williamson Art Gallery collecting the finished leaves to be displayed amongst the hundreds that will be shown for the commemorance.
I have also been working on another project as one of the Wilfred Owen Commemorance artists designing poppies that will be on display in Hamilton Square gardens on 11th November. I will be running this workshop as well as the Fallen Leaf Workshop on the 26th October so come along and decorae a leaf and construct a poppy in commemoration. Both workshops are free and open to anyone to take part in.
