Working within a process reflective of life experiences, I embrace accidental and incidental moments; allowing myself to be guided by material. In doing so, I have come to realise that I am always seeking the catalyst or disruption. My decisions are therefore an adaptation or acquiescence to circumstance as I navigate between anxiety and optimism; chaos and control.
In nature, all things must adapt to the uncontrollable elements forced upon them, and I’ve embraced an awareness of the transformative nature of the elements in my practice. For example, I may use water to form paper, fire to form plastic and rain and stone to form plaster.

I recently returned from the Lake District after a short yet blissful retreat at the iconic Merzbarn in the quaint village of Elterwater. My colleague, Sarah Tew, received a travel grant form Slade and invited me, Jazmin Donaldson and Choe One to spend a...
My intention with this mural was to create a wall that changes each day; to be always on the verge of becoming something else. I am interested in the blending of natural and “unnatural” space and capturing that which is on the verge of renewal. I knew I...
