Pushing materials to extremes and experimentation are essential to my work and I use the kiln as a time machine to scar and erode my pieces.
After graduating from my degree in three-dimensional design 15 years ago I moved to Bath to take up a two year residency. I now have my studio at Bath Artists’ Studios. I share my practice in a variety of different settings, including the local community, the health sector, further and higher education establishments and from my own studio.
I have won a number of awards and prizes in the UK and Japan and as an artist my work has been widely exhibited in galleries throughout the UK, including The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and the Royal West of England Academy on several occasions. I won the Pangolin Prize for Sculpture at The Royal West of England Academy Autumn Exhibition 2016.Screenshot 2021-07-02 at 10.06.35
