Welcome to my website
Working across photography, painting and sculpture I make ambiguous, open-ended landscape images to invite shared responses and dialogue. The art works are informed by psychological theories from my parallel career as a Research Psychologist.
Hands-on & experimental, my studio photographic practice combines everyday materials including beauty products, office stationary, liquid food items to create small, temporary moving sculptures purely for the camera. The final prints can be large-scale (150cm) and are shown mounted on DiBond without the barrier of glass frames and are not manipulated.
Paintings are on board and are layered with oil paint and domestic substances, built up over many months. I also make some works outside of the studio such as photographic jigsaws completed by audiences over the duration of exhibitions and landscapes from moving forms of transport.
I take part in commercial and artist led exhibitions, residences and work to commission with work held by hotels and private collections.
