Projects

Face to Face

“The ‘Face to Face’ series was completed between 2015 and 2017. There are eleven works in this series. This series of works developed from my previous projects ‘Fragments’, ‘Life Lines’ and ‘Traces’. These projects focused on an abstract interpretation of the human form. However, the ‘Face to Face’ series is intentionally more figurative and confrontational […]

Traces

“During 2013, I was commissioned by the Bowery Gallery in Leeds to produce a new body of work to be exhibited as a solo exhibition in the gallery.  Further to the ‘Fragments’ and ‘Life Lines’ series, I began to work on a larger scale and consider how the pieces in space.  I produced 10 new […]

Life Lines

“Following the completion of the ‘Fragments’ series, I began to work on a new body of work which formed the basis of a new touring solo exhibition.

Body Mapping

“The ‘Body Mapping’ project was established in 2015 during my ‘Bodyworks’ solo exhibition and residency at Bankley Studios & Gallery in Manchester. Several years ago, I completed a Foundation Course in Art Therapy with the British Association of Art Therapists. Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy in which making images and objects plays a central […]

Hospitality Re-Viewed

“Alongside my studio practice I am occasionally asked to participate in projects and collaborate with other artists. Re-View Textile is a contemporary artists network based in the North West. Members were invited to produce a new series of works in response to the theme ‘Hospitality’ for the Liverpool Independents Biennial in 2012. 21 members of […]

Drawn From Life

“Following my studies, I returned to exclusively drawing for a period of time. I felt the primacy of drawing would encourage me to return to something basic and familiar. The development of a personal language through drawing, as a vehicle to convey meaning and ideas, has remained central to my practice. Through drawing, I endeavour […]
