    Artist Statement

    I make two and three dimensional drawings and paintings which explore ideas to do with time, transition, absence and presence. Themes and directions are influenced by a particular passion for natural history and the environment. Material and process alongside methods of deconstruction and reconstruction play a central role as a way to add dialogue and meaning. 

    Past projects inlcuse 'Wallace 100' a project informed by research into the legacy of victorian naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace and coinciding with nation-wide events instigated by the Natural History Museum. Work produced for this project drew upon an interest in his notebooks and published writings as well as ideas to do with censorship and authenticity.

    More recently, 'Hidden' - A site based project at Wicken Fen Nature Reserve in Cambridgeshire with artist Helen Terry. Culminating in an Art trail showing Mixed Media Installations in the Hides at the National Trust Reserve. Also, an Exhibition of work at Babylon Gallery in Ely.
