I went to Middlesbrough Art college and then to Herefordshire college of Art taking the Design Crafts Course. After leaving Art College, I was self-employed for a number of years as a crafts person before doing a number of residencies in Scotland and the North of England. I then trained to become an Art teacher. I try to find time in school holidays to continue to make my own work.
My working method has have always involved working with a mixture of materials mostly found. I use a spot welder a lot but use a variety of different methods form electro etching to no more nails. My work has various themes ranging from horses to movie stars. I have recently become interested in cross sections and vintage diagrams and this is what some of my work is based on.
