                                                                                  Artist’s statement


My work explores and documents human behaviour, illuminating the perspectives of individuals.  I am interested in how wider forces such as economics, politics, nature, and social norms shape and affect people’s personal lives. I am drawn to personal accounts, narratives and life stories and use these anecdotes to explore society and how it operates. I take what may be considered mundane objects or ordinary places as my source material because of what they can reveal about people, their past and the events that have shaped their lives. A large amount of my practice is based around drawing. I am continually drawing.

In my wider practice I exhibit both regionally and nationally. I was short listed for the  Jerwood Drawing Prize ( now called the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize) in 2022, 2017 and 2012. I  have also exhibited in 'Drawn' at the Royal West Academy drawing biannual,  and my work had been show in the Royal West Academy Open a number of times. Alongside showing work in London, at galleries such as the, Centre for Recent Drawing,  I have also had  work in a number of regional shows such as Fronteer Gallery Sheffield and Spike Island Test Space in Bristol.

During a show at The Centre for Recent Drawing, London I was part of a panel discussion about the work Led by artist Paul Gravett. The show was a grougp show entitled “Drawing Diary” curated by Artist, curator and writer Sarah Lightman, the show later travelled to a drawing conference at the University of Northampton.  My work has appeared in a number of print and on-line reviews and articles, including Art Rabbit and a-n. I have  been awarded Arts Council funding for a number of projects as well as funding from other sources such as The Heritage Lottery Fund.
