Fine art

Co-founder of Clash Artspace 2015

Drawing is key to my practice, considering everything after that to be an extension of the drawing. I explore ideas around the human condition using humour in the form of caricature to construct a narrative that allows me to distance my own self from the work.  My interest lies in the Post-Human, in particular connections, disconnections, aloneness and social grouping.
After a foundation in Art & Design at Clifton School of Art (2000) I graduated with BA(Hons) Illustration from University West of England (2004). Working then as an Art Tutor and Illustrator and going on to complete an MA (Fine Art) at Bath Spa University in 2018. 
I have exhibited widely in Selected, Group and Solo shows and am a member of IN-CH – critical theory group and  Cotswold Sculpture Association.
