Installation Artist Altered Book Artist Paper Sculptor Book maker Printmaker
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.

I have just got home after visiting CODA late last month to install my work in CODA Paper Art 2015 which will be showing 07.06.2015- 25.10.2015
CODA Paper Art is an international exhibition at CODA Museum Apeldoorn, the Netherlands with art and jewelry created by visual artists and designers that focus on paper and cardboard in their work.
I'll be posting more images over the next few weeks. Check out my blog to find out more about my time at CODA
