Welcome

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.
