After completing a degree in illustration at Exeter College of Art and Design I studied at Goldsmiths College London for a year, and took up drawing classes at the Royal College of Art under the tuition of Bryan Kneale RA. I have been a professional artist, printmaker and illustrator since 1992. My work has been widely exhibited including at the Royal Academy, Royal College of Art and Somerset House
In my work I am exploring the connections between the aural traditions, allegory and folklore of the British landscape. I am fascinated by this sense of prehistory, the way it surfaces in old place names and early monuments offering comment on the mysteries of our lives, our existence and traditions. My inspiration is taken from the landscape but I am interested in, and concerned with the point at which the figurative meets the abstract.
