I gained a first class BA(Hons) Craft degree from the University of Derby in 2010 and am currently working as a maker from my base in Derbyshire.
My sculptures are inspired by the shapes, textures and colours of both urban and rural landscapes. As a result they often reference ornithology and the human figure; their intriguing forms inviting the viewer to touch and find their own interpretation or meaning.
My work is very much technique-led, and is the outcome of the interaction between myself and the processes and materials I am working with. Biomorphic forms have evolved from play with flexible materials and containers and are the result of the actions I perform on materials. The forms are continually evolving and every new maquette is an experiment: I am never entirely sure of how the final form will look or in what direction it may take my work.
