Bristol, UK

I have been a practising full time artist based in Bristol since 2001.

In 2009 I finished my first major project 'Hotel Mind', which was exhibited in Berlin that same year with the Turn-Berlin Gallery.

My work is extensively researched, through books, journalling, questioning and sketching to gain a concise understanding of my subject.

I am interested in social realities and the philosophies, cultural history and psychological processes that shape them.

My next project is based on the powerlessness of childhood focusing on the morification of adolescence. It aims to explore matters of over control, suppression, depression, displacement,, identity, individuation and the rites of passage and the effect this phase of development has in adulthood. Also taking into account family and social history including class.
