Having spent most of my life living a stone’s throw from the beach, much of my work is informed by a strong connection to the sea. I am inspired by those dynamic places at the edges of our lands; the shifting sands, dune systems, strand lines and the timelessness of the tides.
My aim is to simplify this dynamic, littoral landscape to its essential elements of colour and form. Whether working close to home or further afield in more remote coastal locations, a strong affinity and familiarity with an area is important.
Hand-bound artist books have increasingly become an integral part of my practice, offering an alternative and highly creative approach to presenting collections of work.
I am currently represented by galleries in London, Scotland and North West England and my work is held in private collections internationally Some of my handcrafted books are on permanent display in London and in Ilulissat, Western Greenland.
Limited and open edition prints are available for purchase through this website and I exhibit and sell regularly at art events across the North West.
As a self taught photographer, I enjoy helping others to master new techniques and offer 1:1 tuition and mentoring.
