Welcome to my website. I am a visual artist based in London and Cornwall, where I grew up.
My art work explores the interactive relationships between the elements, the land and ourselves. As well as the physical traces left by these interactions, I am interested the customs, routines, stories and mythologies surrounding our place in the environment, both rural and urban. I use a range of media which include painting, photography, video, performance and installation. Along with developing my own explorations, I work collaboratively with other artists, including writers and musicians.
I have participated in selected group exhibitions, film festivals and residencies across the country. I am a member of the Newlyn Society of Artists (NSA). Founded in 1896, 'the NSA is a diverse group of approximately 85 professional contemporary Cornish artists'.
I welcome commissions and sales enquiries about my artwork. Please contact me
