About Me

My photo
Liverpool, United Kingdom
My work has developed a lot over the 3 years I've studied for my degree. It has evolved into a body of work that deals with the human form as an environment. I've mapped and explored my own body inside and out in many ways through print, drawing and various media as a type of research to address self identity

New book

I don't know if I've mentioned I'm signed up to take part in a project called 'Jazzcakes100:Postcards'
The basic idea is 100 artists, each assigned a number 1- 100 each has to design a piece of work within the confines of a postcard (6x4 inch) and base the work around the assigned number.

I was given number 4.
I was thinking about the fact the work is relating to postcards,travel,etc and decided to look at my own photos of my past trips around the world. I visited Utah about 2 years ago and took some great photos of the landscape there and had always intended to us them within my print work. I finally found an opportunity.

The book I designed consists of 4 photos, taken over 4 days during my time in Utah. 
I decided an  artist book would be the perfect way to tackle this project due to the size limits and it's also good way to add a narrative to the work. The book is about travel and taking a journey while immersing ones self within an alien environment while trying to learn and live within a foreign community which is not always easy to understand.

Welcome to my blog! :)

This page is primarily a documentation of my art work I create. I'm a BA Fine Art, Mixed Media Student currently in my final year of my degree.

My work deals with ideas of the fragility of the human condition and often consists of images of my own body. I tend to work with materials that reflect the delicacy of the human form such as stitch and fabrics. My drawing style i like to describe as a "nervous" line, which also ties in with the themes of all my work.
