Overview

My work as a Visual Artist explores the relationship between the human world and the natural environment.

I have trilateral components to my practice. The use of Solarplate™ printmaking is used in response to my urban surroundings, often focusing on a transitory solitary figure. In comparison, the use of oil paint is employed to express a romantic, utopian notion of the land, devoid of modernity and people. The third element pulls the other two together and consists of sculptural, architectural forms which are more conceptual in nature.

The effects on the natural environment by the human world is a continual narrative that is expressed within my practice.

Since 2013 I have focussed on printmaking. In 2018, alongside running my art practice, I completed a Master’s Degree with Distinction in Printmaking from Anglia Ruskin University. This period of study enabled me to experiment further with wood cut printmaking techniques and fine art installation.

I originally trained in Interior Design and Furnishing Textiles before pursuing a career within the corporate sector. Returning to the arts in the millennium I have been a self-employed professional Visual Artist for more than a decade.  Alongside my practice I am an Artist Facilitator at , teach oil painting and printmaking privately, mentor students studying for GCSE and A level Art exams and I also participate on judging art competition panels.

Commissioned work includes many pieces for  Cambridge, and more recently a print commission for the new Cambridge Building Society central offices.

I possess an enhanced DBS check (June 2019).
