I am an artist who lives and works in Derby. After graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2002 I received animation and artist film commissions from S4C (Channel 4 Wales), Film London and Capture. Since 2016 I’ve mainly been making artist’s books and exhibiting at artist book fairs, most recently at the first Malmö Artist’s Book Biennial MABB2018, and the Liverpool Book Arts Frankenstein 2018 exhibition and tour.

I’m currently interested in the marginal, ephemeral and overlooked, and how luck, chance and anxiety can be embodied in small objects, such as books and other poetic objects.

From 2016 to 2018 I participated in Document – a Contemporary Visual Arts Network East Midlands project documenting the practice and working lives of six artists living in the East Midlands, here we are.

My drawn artist’s book, Exercise book, can be seen in the Trinity Buoy Drawing Prize 2018 exhibition which ends its tour at Drawing Projects UK in April, and the PAGES New Voices exhibition, first shown at the 22nd International Contemporary Artists’ Book Fair at The Tetley Leeds, and now touring to Rotherham Open Arts Renaissance, Doncaster Art Gallery & Museum, and The Cooper Gallery, Barnsley in March and April.
