I am an artist printmaker working mainly in photo-screenprints. My recent work predominantly focuses on the built environment and the urban grunge discovered whilst roaming around the back streets of cities especially in the former Eastern Bloc. I am drawn to the aged patina of cities with a dark past and try to draw attention to their often overlooked backdrops. My own experiences and those of the people who have lived in the places I have visited are important aspects when I produce my prints.
I originally hail from West Yorkshire. In 2005 I received a BA Hons in Fine Art from Bradford University and a few years later successfully completed an MA in Printmaking at Cambridge School of Art. I also teach Art at a secondary school in Northampton and I am a member of Leicester Print Workshop where I make most of my prints.
My work has been exhibited in group shows throughout the UK, including London’s Mall Gallery, the Sidney Cooper Gallery in Canterbury and Cambridge University.
