About

I am a multi-disciplinary image-maker, the main focus of my activities has always centered on the creative investigation of ‘process’, with an emphasis, not to mention passion for discovery, within a direct hands-on approach to the interaction and manipulation of media and materials. My visual practice explores the relationship between text and image and narrative; integrating digital applications within a traditional craft based approach, incorporating printmaking, drawing and bookbinding.

Within my freelance practice, I have worked on a wide range of commissions from book cover designs for a variety of UK based publishing companies including, Random House (Vintage) and Absolute Press, as well as editorial work and design briefs. Whilst I continue to actively participate in exhibiting my personal work in various solo and collective exhibitions and small press events, since my graduation from Bath with First Class Honours in 1997.
