I'm an environmental artist mainly working with recycled materials. I started out as a watercolour land and cityscape artist before going to college to first take a foundation course and then to graduate from Wirral Metropolitan College with a first class BA honours degree in fine art in 2009. I continued to develop my practice at the same institute on the fellowship program for a further year before working independently as an artist.
I exhibit regularly, showing work regionally, nationally and internationally. Within my art practice I also usually work on community based projects & run workshops although due to our current situation I am venturing into showing work through online films.
I usually work with paper, constructing sculptural pieces from it, printing on it or making 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 and I focus most of my attention on environmental issues using my art practice as a platform to reflect my concerns of our consumption and environmental responsibility, often recycling discarded materials to produce a response.
