About My Work
I use old and out-of-date maps and atlases as my fabric to create intricate, delicate and detailed sculptures and collages that have been described as ‘exquisitely ethereal’ by the Financial Times..
Nature is ever present, even in the most urban environments, taking over wherever we neglect, living in a separate yet parallel universe. I take my inspiration from the natural environment, creating entomological installations of flora and fauna from imagined locations. My birds, insects and flowers transcend borders and pass freely between countries with scant regard for rules of immigration or the effects of biodiversity.
The sculptures are either pinned directly onto the wall as a large scale installation or captured in box frames. The shadows created when light is shined on them creates a dynamic three-dimensional quality and creates a feeling of movement.
Since I could first pick up a pencil, art was the only thing I was really interested in. My journey to become a professional artist has involved living in Spain and Romania and working for a high profile architects practice, amongst other things, whilst always working away on my art.
I grew up in Lincolnshire and have been living and working in London for over 20 years. I’ve been pursuing art as a profession since 2000 and recently made the jump to work on my sculptures full-time.
I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to exhibit my work widely – from Manchester Art Gallery to Sydney, Australia. You can see my sculptures in public and private collections all over the world, including:
The Corinthia Hotel, London
The Hayatt Hotel, New Orleans
The Caledonian Hotel, Edinburgh
I have also been lucky enough to have my work published in many magazines and books including – Vogue, World of Interiors, Marie-Claire Maison, Casa de Arbitrare, Paper, Tear, Fold, Rip, Crease, Cut – Black Dog publishing and Underground Maps – Lund Humphries.
In 2012 I am pleased to say I was invited to be an inaugural member of the Perrier Jouet Art Salon and Prize. The salon meets twice a year and awards a prize to an artist/designer within 5 year of graduating.
I work to commission on both large and small scale projects. If you’d like to discuss a custom made piece please contact me and I’ll be happy to talk about the possibilities.
