I create complex, three dimensional sculptures using macrame and knot works techniques. I am keen to develop these intricate, tactile structures to show how they can support themselves, even given the delicate and flexible nature of the material. These are part of a planned series of works, that are still in production, in which I continue to experiment with shape, form, scale and materials. Every piece I create is unique and they bring with them their own challenges structurally and visually. Every day is an opportunity…
As an artist, I enjoy the exploration of abstract form, conceptualism and figurative art in my painting, sketches and sculptures.
I was born in Dorset in 1975 and I have a lifelong passion for art and animation.
I pursued this passion at Arts University Bournemouth, where I benefited from the guidance of remarkable lecturers such as Peter Parr and Peter Symons.
I embarked on a successful career in the animation industry, producing work for various TV channels and screening my work at many prestigious animation and film festivals around the world.
I trained as a Further & Higher Education teacher where I had the opportunity to teach animation and digital media to students of all ages, diverse backgrounds and abilities, especially those who encountered obstacles to learning.
In addition to my teaching and animation work, I co-founded and managed Stilton Studios, a multimedia business that offered high-quality digital design solutions for clients across the UK and abroad.
My artistic journey took a new direction in 2020, when the Covid pandemic made me rekindle my initial love of the arts.
I decided to devote myself entirely to my sculpture, experimenting with techniques, size, form and materials. I currently work as a full-time contemporary artist in my Brighton studio, where I continue to experiment and evolve. My hope is to share my sculptures with an International audience.
