About Me

Hello, welcome.

I'm an artist that enjoys creating sculpture and wall-based artworks with the unusual but fascinating material of silicone. 

In the last few months I’ve been busy in the studio making new works as both originals and limited edition prints, making them available here for the first time. I do also currently have three pieces in 'Samples' curated by Plinth x Royal Society of Sculptors London.

Recently I have also been lucky enough to be 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 three year project creating works for and curating an alternative museum/gallery/installation space and garden in 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, ESC Gallery Graz Austria and Gallery Works, Osaka Japan.

I originally studied a BA in Fine Art at Birmingham School of Art, University of Central England, graduating with a first in 2003. I later undertook an MA in Photography at LCC, University of the Arts London, 2009.

Works are in private collections and also the public collections of the National Media Museum and University of the Arts London.

I am based on the South East coast of the UK, currently off the coast on the Isle of Wight, but planning to re-locate to Hastings in the next 6 months.

P.S. My name is pronounced as in ‘ever and ever’. Amen.

Preferred pronouns she or they (either is fine).
