My work exploits the aesthetic potential of light, creating optically kinetic patterns of coloured light and shade.

My work explores the physics of light, creating optically kinetic works that delight and engage the viewer, asking them to question ‘how’. I aim to encourage the viewer to consider the materiality of light itself by harnessing and ordering the light into ephemeral patterns of changing colour, light and shade. 

After studying Furniture Design,  I went on to study glass at the Royal College of Art, where I worked on architectural scale projects dealing with light and space.  I produce work for gallery exhibition and have shown extensively throughout the UK, My work is  also shown regularly at Art Fairs throughout Europe, Canada and the United States.

I have been commissioned by large organisations such as IPC Media, Deloitte & Touche, Barclays’ bank Wellcome Trust,  Premier Travel and a number of large hospitals.   I am  currently awaiting the outcome of a Concept Design proposal for an new Zaha Hadid Building in Riyadh that I was  recently commissioned to develop.

In 2005 I was selected for the Arts Council England East’s Escalator Visual Arts Scheme. This scheme identified eleven of the most promising artist in the region in order to support and develop their practice.
