About me

Inspired by the interaction between colour and form my work is heavily process led and usually sees my work change from flat graphic shapes to three dimensional, sometimes sculptural, tactile surfaces and materials. My studies to date, have left me with a large repertoire of skills particularly in silk screen print, dying and embossing. Inquisitive and exploratory my work is flexible and can be used in a variety of settings.
