In recent work I have manipulated found imagery in an attempt to elaborate new patterns of meaning from disparate and sometimes fragmented source material. The images, many of which allude to the history of technology, from cosmological diagrams to renaissance perspectival illustration, are reimagined as a means of exploring ideas of location, mapping, time and space. In making this work I am interested in teasing out the allusions and potential narratives which emerge between invention and appropriation.


I trained at Wimbledon School of Art and completed my MA in Fine Art Printmaking at Camberwell College of Art in 2000. I have contributed to exhibitions and conferences on a national and international basis and have work represented in a number of collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. I have taught in art schools for a number of years and from 2001 to 2013 was Course Leader for MA Fine Art and MA Printmaking at Anglia Ruskin University Cambridge. I moved with my family to Scotland in 2013 and now live and work near Edinburgh.
