About me

I am a multi-disciplinary artist currently working with photography, screen printing, sketching and painting.

 

After graduating from Camberwell College of Arts, I have instigated group performance, installation, murals and have exhibited in several group shows over the last 20 years.

After a brief hiatus, I produced a body of work called ‘Urbanature’ exploring the magical intersection between nature and man-made environments.

I’ve been painting since the start of the covid pandemic and have developed a body of 

gouache paintings on cold pressed paper called ‘Lockdown Labyrinth.’ I have exhibited them in a solo show in June 2022.

Much of my work is currently rooted in the keen observation of everyday spaces and 

capturing fleeting moments. I have developed a practice of active looking that I call 

‘eating with my eyes.’ This is based on my interest in how observation and memory 

can work to create fictionalised reality, but also on how creativity can be democratised,
so that anyone can take part.

I currently work at ASC studios in Brixton, London

Alongside my visual arts practice, I work as a service and social designer in the Third Sector. I have previously worked as a graphic designer, art director and an interaction designer.
