My interest in time, the object and the environment informs much of my work. I explore meaning through the combined use of different media, bringing them together to create a complex discussion. I continually experiment with the qualities each medium possesses to bear down on the essence of what I want to convey. I also teach life drawing and painting & drawing for beginners, both on-line and in-person and am a Print Associate at the Art Academy, London.

I am regularly involved in exhibitions within the UK.  My work is held in private collections in the UK and abroad.
