My practice is centred around developing an understanding of people and place through a diverse range of projects and collaborations.

To explore the human experience and discover the spaces around us, sharing findings through a range of aesthetically charged outcomes employing the use of colour, text, form and more recently sound.

Using creativity as a tool to connect the participant, viewer, artist and the wider audience, hopefully to nurture wellbeing via the understanding of our own lives, spaces and the points of view of others.
