Travelling artist, hiking around.
Currently living and working in Hackney, East London.
I have always loved making things, experimenting with ideas and working in a variety of different ways. I have an inherent interest in form, abstraction, materials and space, and not being confined to a specific way of making work enables me to explore a range of ideas. Often influenced by my experiences of hiking around South America and exploring the UK, I enjoy making outdoor site-specific installations. Responding directly to the history and foundations of a location enables me to explore the connections between the work and its surroundings.
More recently, I have been trying out a more illustrative and humorous approach to making paintings, in order to reflect upon the unpredictable and often bizarre situations I find myself in. It’s really good fun and the most free I’ve felt making work to date.
In May 2015, I was awarded a travel bursary from Falmouth University to go on an art research trip in Italy. I travelled through Tuscany, Umbria, Rome and Turin on the hunt for exciting Contemporary Art and I was definitely not disappointed.
