    Biography

    I am a visual artist using installation, drawing, photography, painting and sculpture to communicate.

    Over time as my work has progressed I get more of a sense of the subconsious pouring through. I am always led by a vague sense of something, currently it is the narrative of maps, personal histories, documenting something of ourselves whilst unravelling our stories. However the more I revisit my work I realise that it has always been about traversing, moving, flying, crawling, sailing, sinking.  Always about a form of movement. Litterally, conceptually, historically, personally.
