Art Practice

I am a visual artist whose main specialism is drawing and painting. My work is site specific, often made travelling away on residencies or participative projects in response to a particular location. I often use unconventional drawing materials such as transparent voile, acetate and balsa wood - and wide angle, panoramic formats. My 3D live drawing installations have taken place at a variety of sites, including South Bank, London, Sage Gateshead, and Brighton Pavilion Gardens.

I have undertaken artists residencies in schools, hospitals, galleries and heritage sites and have exhibited my work across the UK and internationally. This has included a collaborative project in Shetland and Cornwall, exhibiting my work at the Scottish Parliament and the Shetland Museum, culminating in a performance and display at Tate Modern. I have been a recipient of the Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary which included a residency at the Bluecoat, Liverpool, with an exhibition the following year.

I have personal and professional experience of visual impairment. I currently work as a freelance trainer for VocalEyes, facilitate art workshops and teach in a variety of galleries, museums and community spaces.

Transparency DVD

I have made a short film showing my work with transparency and panoramic formats. The film has a commentary, captioning and shows stills and footage from drawing installations, residencies and participative projects.

I trained in Fine Art at Bristol, specialising in painting, and later completed a Masters in Drawing at Wimbledon College of Art. I currently have a studio at Cannizaro Park in South London.
