About me
Working as a Photographer on board a cruise ship for four years, I visited many places igniting my passion for travel and exploration into the unknown. This experience stimulated my creativity compelling me to capture experiences and ambiances in a way I felt a photograph alone could not. There is a personal narrative undertone within my practice as the experiences I have had and photographs I take, shape the ‘starting block’ from which my work evolves. This however is not an exclusive element and is not visually distinct in order to prohibit the audience from experiencing it without preconceived notions of ‘meaning’ or context. This being the case, in turn affords the viewer the opportunity to be engaged by the aesthetic and have the space and freedom to interpret according to their own subjectivity. The sea and the relationship between its physical and aesthetic qualities is a particular area of interest for me. My pieces range from figurative to abstract and explore the concepts behind them in three main disciplines: painting, photography and sculpture, more recently manifesting as large scale assemblages. I aim to constantly develop various processes within my practice. Photography provides the grounding to my work, and other medias grow from this. With the aid of digital mediation I am developing the ability to realise my ideas on a larger scale, turning photographs and drawings into wooden structures that create immersive scenes. By exploring assemblage, I look to encompass materials and specific objects to create an alchemy of ideas and sensations. This process of gathering source material, manipulation and display, holds potential to develop my practice and is itself a concept I will continue to unfold. Currently my work is exploring the idea of metaphorical representation manifesting in process and object orientation, with particular attention to the oscillation between public and private within art practice. This investigation was born from my exploration into the Postcard, as object and material, which provided the corner stone to my dissertation as well as studio practice.
