Largely human-centred and moving between figuration and abstraction, the work explores ideas around the opposites: fragile/robust; surface/subsurface; build/raze; expose/conceal with a deepening focus on current social issues: work, youth, age, relationships, class, identity.

Artist Statement

I am a British artist working in paper and spraypaint. Largely human-centred and moving between figuration and abstraction, the work explores ideas around the opposites: fragile/robust; surface/subsurface; build/raze; expose/conceal with a deepening focus on current social issues: work, youth, age, relationships, class, identity.

I am currently working in socially-engaged practice, on an extended project exploring ageing and longevity, with both young and older participants.  Further details can be found on my website.
