Artist, Lecturer / academic

I continue to take photographs, build cardboard models and make digital drawings. One recurring theme is the regeneration of Weston-super-Mare. In 2012, I completed a commission to explore 3D printing with Exeter Pheonix and the University of Exeter, and I am looking to integrate new printed elements into models or films of models. 'Visiting Birnbeck' is an ongoing project about Birnbeck Island started in 2009. The island is linked to the mainland by a pier, which is no longer open to the public. It awaits redevelopment or collapse into the sea. Previous Project 'Urban Documents': This national touring exhibition has both colour documentary photographs and works made in the studio by photographing cardboard models. The subjects are predominately from Weston-super-Mare, but also Bristol and beyond. They explore the exteriors of buildings that have been adapted over time, including back views of mansions, hotels, and commercial buildings. Added staircases, roof windows and air-conditioning units have become new and significant features.
