I'm a printmaker living in South Wales.
My work explores man-made landscapes with a focus on industrial and urban environments. In both industrial and agricultural settings, we shape, manipulate and modify the land for our own gain. In doing so, the architectural shapes and patterns we create form part of our cultural landscape, and communicate the history and heritage of a place.
Through printmaking techniques, I challenge myself to explore new ways to present my observations. My aim is to elevate negatively perceived environments; the places we pass every day and fail to notice or choose to ignore, and give them a voice.
With a bias towards screenprinting, I like to push the boundaries of the process, and play with colour. I create intricate, hand-cut paper stencils, and print layers of vibrant colour to build my images.
Over the years I have worked with many organisations and businesses to create bespoke artwork for interior spaces. I’ve worked extensively in education; in Primary, Secondary, Further and Higher Education sectors, and have a long-standing commitment to sharing my expertise with groups in the community.
I've exhibited widely as a solo artist, and have enjoyed every opportunity to collaborate with other practitioners and contribute to group shows. I have curated exhibitions in the UK and have also toured collections internationally.
In recent years my work was purchased by the Palace of Westminster for the Parliamentary Art Collection and is displayed at Portcullis House. My work is also held at the National Library of Wales, Contemporary Arts Society of Wales, Cabinet Office, Westminster and in many private collections.
