     Installation Artist       Altered Book Artist       Paper Sculptor       Book maker       Printmaker

 

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 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.

 Artist Statement

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.

April 2015 Update

 

I will be showing three paper installations at CODA Paper Art 2015 | 07.06 t/m 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.

 

Here's a peek at the new installation work as well as some pieces you might recognise that I will be showing.
