About

Artist's Statement:
I am inspired by changing spaces and turbulence at ground level, in entangled ecosystems and their residue.

My approach has been described as forensic. In my conceptual and multidisciplinary visual art and writing I focus on small objects in order to meditate on knowns and unknowns that agitate and reverberate to form concepts relative to place therefore to speculate on multiplicitous experiences of being. All my art is based on observation. I use the difference between form and detail to invite the audience into my work and make them look more closely.

Bio:
I hold a First Class BA Hons in Fine Art & Contemporary Culture, 2019, from University of Gloucestershire, and a BA Hons History of Art, English and Media & Communications, 1993, from University of Wolverhampton. I currently share a studio in Coventry, am a member of Coventry ArtSpace Advisory Board, and volunteer for Coventry Biennial of Art. I take contemporary art and graphic design commissions. I live with my family in the West Midlands, UK.
