I am a visual artist and songwriter from West Yorkshire (UK). 

I have spent a considerable amount of time developing my practice whilst travelling; completing residencies in Southern Europe and Scandinavia, including northwest Greenland. I consider myself primarily a painter-printmaker, but my work extends to installation and video. Since 2008 I have also been actively involved in writing, recording and performing music. 

I am often drawn to documents - usually photographs or films - that invite further investigation or exploration of the image. I'm interested how making things transforms materials into knowledge through the experience of being in the world; how people interact with landscapes and environments to create a sense of place. The fields of geology, anthropology and ecology play a central role in my research, overlapping and weaving throughout the different transformation processes inherent to my creative practice.

I am currently undertaking an MA Fine Art at The University of Leeds.
