I am an artist based in Sunderland, UK, and much of the work I produce is influenced by what is happening in the present and occurrences from my past. I consider life experiences of joy, pain and indifference and feel my work to be a medium I can use to connect and empathize with like-minded audiences.

I use text with still and moving image and there is always a link to analogue or digital photography, which is where my artistic journey began and continues. Acrylics, oils and canvas play a prominent role in my practice, and I often try to bring different media together as I feel each can offer its own inimitable elements to a project.

I graduated from The University of Sunderland with a First Class Honours Degree in Photography, Video and Digital Imaging and will soon be studying for an MA in Contemporary Fine Art.
