About

Having spent most of my life living a stone’s throw from the coast, much of my work is informed by the dynamic places at the far edges of the land and the transience of the littoral landscape.  The tidal islands and shifting, windswept sands at the mouth of the Dee Estuary near my home in North West England provide the focus for much of my interest and recent projects have involved combining photographic techniques with mixed media processes to visually interpret cycles of ebb and flow.

Perhaps inevitably, I also feel a great affinity with other seaward-facing communities and this has led to visual explorations of remote northern coastlines, including Arctic Greenland.

Hand-crafted artists books have increasingly become part of my practice, offering an alternative and individual approach to presenting collections of work. Copies of my Collector’s Edition books are on permanent display in London and in Ilulissat Kunst Museum, Western Greenland

I am currently represented by galleries in LondonScotland and North West England and my work is held in private collections internationally.

Original pieces and editioned prints are available for purchase via the shop section of this website,  the gallery representatives listed below or directly from me via email.
