My practice is driven by my ongoing investigation into the way objects exist and are seen within a space or landscape both natural and man-made. I am interested in the way objects change as the viewer interacts with them, as they move past and through.

I make large scale free standing sculptural installations for both the public realm and for gallery exhibition, as well as more intimate wall based sculptures in which I use colour and light. I have always used photography, printmaking and drawing to enhance and expand my sculptural work.

I have an ongoing project in which I take photographs of landscapes, these I digitally manipulate to reveal something more than was evident in the original photograph - to reveal the unexpected.

I have been a practicing artist for twenty years and I have exhibited regularly both sculpture and 2-dimensional work in both group and solo shows. In 2005 I was short-listed for the Jerwood sculpture prize, in 2006 I took part in a group exhibition in the Spitz gallery in Spitalfields in which I showed a series of digital prints of the sky taken on journeys around London.

 In 2007 I successfully completed a public art commission for Whitelands Park a new housing development in Putney, I was also short-listed for a major public art commission for the Odyssey Complex in Belfast.

In February 2009  I was invited to take part in the “Borderlands” exhibition at the Collyer Bristow Gallery in London.
