I am a visual artist based in Cornwall. In its broadest sense, my work is about the living landscape and our relationship with it. My most recent work incorporates items collected on walks across the fields or by the sea - a practice that emerged during the first lockdown. I am interested the customs, routines, stories and mythologies surrounding our relationship with the land and the elements. I use a range of media which include assemblage, found objects, painting, photography, video, 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 currently Chair of the Newlyn Society of Artists (NSA). Founded in 1896, 'the NSA is a diverse group of approximately 100 professional contemporary Cornish artists'. The NSA is based at Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens, Penzance, showing twice a year in the gallery there. For details of our next exhibition, click SHOWCASE 2023
