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 a lot 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 little studio at home 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.

Many new works are hused in a sculpture garden ‘Beeldentuin Achter de Westduinen’ in Ouddorp on the western edge of the island of Goeree Overflakkee over the Summer.
The original eight pieces of 'Out of Palms Way' will take permanent residence there while many others wlll be housed there this Summer, including 'Forest: Lungs of the World', 'Inner Beauty', Can't see the Trees for the Forest' and some 'Fungal Spores' and five new tree pieces.
Also this month I will be running summer workshops at the Williamson art gallery for children aged 8-15. Booking places is essential and they get filled quickly! The theme this year is 'making places special' and during my week in the gallery we will be making flags about places that are special to us and will produce them through printmaking processes and sewing.
