About

Born in Kendal, England in 1983. I'm now based in Cramond, Scotland having graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2007 with a degree in Drawing & Painting.

 

Artists Statement

Essentially I aim to produce a body of artwork that is research-based, investigating the properties of single universal mediums, with the understanding of how they function and interact being the primary concern i.e. the slight difference between pencil grades, or the surface worked onto. Aesthetically I’m fascinated with subtle variations and the interaction between colour, layers, surfaces and light that is driven by a curiosity with process & duration. The geometry of the study and specific format that I repeatedly work within came from the structure and routine I experienced through hospitalisation, resulting in the constant ratio and shape that governs my practice.

Emphasis is placed upon the value of knowledge gained through the act of doing.
