    Artist Statement

    My work is about nationhood, Britishness and landscape.

    I graduated from Wimbledon Collage of Art in 2006 with a Masters Distinction degree and an Axis MAstar award. I was selected for the Arts and Business' 'Vision' for the North West and was shortlisted for the inaugural Greater Manchester Arts Prize.

    My work has been featured in exhibitions throughout the UK and in Europe and I have completed comissions for a variety of companies including The Co-operative and The Palace Hotel in Manchester.

    I am Senior Tutor for Scholarship and Research at Blackpool School of Arts and have contributed to a number of conferences and publications on creative arts and education.
