In my practice as a conceptual artist, I take influence from the world that surrounds me. Through my art I like to capture the beauty of people. Different mediums allow me to express different ideas.
In 2020, I completed my Masters in Fine Art at Teesside University following a degree in Glass and Ceramics at the National Glass centre, Sunderland and started my journey as a professional artist following a short career in the Civil Service.
I studied a BA in Glass and Ceramics at the University of Sunderland where I focused on both Cast glass and Ceramics.
Getting outside is good for the soul, celebrating the human and the marks people make on the world. Finding beauty in the ordinary, questioning attitudes and fears and connecting people to their environment.
People watching and capturing details from nature and
surroundings inspire my work, exploring a range of ideas that are coherent about how we cope with the pace of life and methods to escape and reflect.
more recently i have designed and produced a range of bold and contemporary fruit and vegetables which look chic and elegant in modern spaces.
my colourful paintings have taken on a more abstract feel capturing the beauty of the surrounding landscapes of Yorkshire and the dales.
My conceptual work often takes on the form of an installation. I enjoy model making and use this as a tool to refine large scale installations, often experimenting with a range of media such as concrete, wood and rubber choosing the best materials to convey my concept clearly.
Although the subject of my work is often quite sensitive my works aim is to make you smile and reflect.
