Biography

My work focuses on our built and social environment - planned societies and governed life, and the processes of urban planning driven by political and economic demands, whilst paying little regard to our needs and aspirations. Sculptural assemblages piece together fragments of everyday construction materials, handmade ceramic objects and graphite drawings. Rough raw elements are gathered, altered, crafted, and made precious, some appear as historical or geological artefacts. Making do with the materials available, referencing DIY and adhoc activities; self build housing projects and anarchist architecture. I am interested in shaping, altering, and constructing our own spatial environments, whilst critically thinking about the failed modernist estates of our new towns and cities
