Following a career as an illustrator in the UK, I have lived in southern France since 2001 where I have explored the creative potential of freedom from the restrictions which the demands of commercial illustration placed upon me. I completed a Masters degree in Fine Art at UWIC in Cardiff, Wales in September 2008 and my piece for the MA final show was chosen by the artist Simon Fenoulhet for review and inclusion as an MAStar on this site. During the summer of 2009, I made a raft journey of 1000 miles down the Mississippi River, from Minnesota to Memphis, Tennessee, creating ephemeral, site-specific pieces along the riverbank as I went. Subsequent to my journey down the Mississippi, site-specific installation, and an engagement with the transient aspects of this kind of work, has become an increasingly important part of my practice. I have made several large-scale installations in the natural environment in UK, as well as one in USA. More recently, text-based work and figurative sculpture have become significant elements in my practice.
