My work draws influences from Film, Rock & Hip-Hop Music Culture, Iconic female Artists. I make play to the sense of order that occurs in nature, as a way of questioning attitudes and behaviours attached towards environment. Applying a tactile, spontaneous approach captures a segment of nature scene and its performance 'Diorama as a horror still’. Heighten the flaws, expose marking out & present mistakes as blessings, is the catalyst to the integrity of my work. A personalisation of arrangements to nature, a juxtaposition of calm & tension in design, as if creating memory. presents the strength & fragile essence of physically formed objects, in dream like quality relating to the way of Tarot.
In developing my working practice from study of Graphic Design, i initiated a practical career as a Set designer, later specifying into Furniture and Cabinet making in Berkshire, completing my apprenticeship in 99’. I tutored arts and crafts before moving to Scotland, completed my degree in Drawing & Painting at Edinburgh College of Art in 2006. Through out this period, i continued practice in commissions whilst living in Bristol. 2010 i Moved to the Scottish Border's and from small cottage on the edge of the forest created 'The Procrastinating Fish', merging 3 passions and discipline’s of Design, Art & Woodwork forming narrative of The Hive 3B collection.
