Photography is my primary medium, though I increasingly intersect this work with drawing and printmaking.  Most of my work utilises traditional, experimental and alternative forms of photography, using analogue and pinhole cameras, as well as camera-less photographic techniques, with a particular interest in cyanotype.

The work is a response to the sea and totemic natural forms – trees and rocks – and explores ideas of time, memory and the unconscious framed by the mutability of matter and the qualities of light and darkness.

In addition to exhibiting widely in group shows, I have co-curated several joint exhibitions with Gill Newton, featuring our individual work.

As well as working individually, I am also part of a 20+ strong group of artists – Drawing Connections -who collaborate to explore the importance of drawing to creative practice.

I studied at Central St Martins College of Art and Design, BA (Hons) Fine Art and Wimbledon College of Art, MA Fine Art.  I also have a degree in Art History from the University of Leeds.
