Biography

At the core of my work is a desire to record tension, gravity and energy flow through strong line and distinct form. Conceptually I draw on man’s complex relationship with nature and merge these ideas with the qualities and limits of the material. Recent work looks at theories of light and gravity as presented by physicists and how these affect our perception of natural forces. I am attracted to materials such as glass that allow me to work with elasticity, transparency and light in expressing the energy present in constructed form. There is an element of self-forming that adds a sense of spontaneity and movement to the work. My practice includes sculpture, photography and printmaking and I am currently on the MA Art and Science programme at UAL Central Saint Martins London (until 2018) and I am artist in residence at THECUBE London where I am investigating the embodiment of gravity in my work. At my studio in Surrey, I teach glass-making courses and have completed public and private commissions including for the National Trust and private building developments.
