My work focuses on the our psychogeographical journey through our lives, the connection we have to the environment around us, both natural and built. I am fascinated how environment has a huge impact on the way we grow and develop, how its shapes our lives and in turn we shape the environment around us. Through exploration of the in between suburban spaces that are so familiar to all my practice aims to communicate these notions of memory and growth. I aim to produce creative, thought provoking images and in my photography. I actively engage with social and environmental issue, and use my work as a medium to raise awareness.

 

About me

 

I initially trained as a sculptural ceramicist based in London where I taught from a small studio in Stoke Newington and managed historic properties for English Heritage. However after relocating to the South West my creative attentions turned toward photography. Being mostly self taught I soon picked up a few awards including my Licentiate distinction with the Royal Photographic Society. I recently completed Masters in Photography with Falmouth University, the Final Major Project for this can be seen on this website.
