About Me

Hello, welcome.

I work with silicone and a hand-held caulking gun to make artworks that examine the boundary between the human and the machine-made.

In exhibition terms, over the past couple of years, I have selected for show 'Samples' curated by Plinth x Royal Society of Sculptors at Cromwell Place in London, selected for the ING Discerning Eye Exhibition, The Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition; The Royal Society of Sculptors Summer Show; The Royal West of England Academy Annual Open and Wells Art Contemporary. In 2022 also winning the Pangolin Digital Ltd Sculpture Prize.

From 2017-2021, my material and process-led based practice concentrated on gaining skills in casting, metal and woodwork and working with unusual materials. This included a project creating works for and curating an alternative museum/gallery/installation space and garden for a cottage open to the public on the Isle of Wight.

Prior to 2017, exhibitions included New Contemporaries, New Art Gallery Walsall, Shoreditch Town Hall London, Bearspace London, Phoenix Gallery Brighton, Gothenburg Museum of Art Sweden, Glasgow International Art Festival and ESC Gallery Graz Austria.

I originally studied a BA(Hons) Fine Art at Birmingham School of Art, University of Central England, graduating with a first in 2003.
