I'm a printmaker living in Swansea, South Wales.
With an emphasis on the urban environment, my work focuses on the industrial heritage and topography of the Welsh coastline.
Through my exploration of printmaking techniques and by creating intricate, hand-cut paper stencils, I screenprint layers of vibrant colour to build my images. I'm constantly exploring new ways of representing my ideas, transforming negatively perceived industrial wastelands and places of social decay into striking images of everyday beauty, where man-made structures and city living is celebrated.
I have worked with several clients to create bespoke artwork for interior spaces, including a commission for John Lewis Stores, Cardiff to create an exclusive set of mono-type screenprints for their Espresso Bar. In 2012 my work was purchased by the Palace of Westminster for the Parliamentary Art Collection and is displayed at Portcullis House. It is also held at the National Library of Wales, Contemporary Arts Society of Wales and in many private collections.
I gained an MA in Fine Art with Distinction at Swansea Institute in 2003. I've exhibited widely as a solo artist and have curated exhibitions including Contemporary Welsh Printmakers, which toured Pakistan in 2007.
