I have been developing my practice since 2014, by way of initial interests in illustration, writing, and exploration. Prior to this, I have been pursuing a successful career in charitable fundraising, marketing and communications since 1995, having previously worked in a range of senior roles for Oxford University, Oxford Brookes University, Opera North, The Story Museum and others. I complete my MFA in Fine Art at Oxford Brookes University in September 2020.
My art explores our highly constructed world, both internally and externally, through close observation and reflection. In doing so, I seeks insights, meaning and hidden stories, drawing on a range of techniques including technical drawing, mapmaking, photography and lighting to reveal a world in a state of flux and transformation. Sometimes playful, sometimes reflective, I like to employ both distant and close-up perspectives to capture moments and details that might otherwise be lost, destroyed or overlooked in our collective obsession with the new and the contemporary.
