My work is an inquiry into societal and practice norms.
My photography explores the traces of humanity and nature on our built environment, through weathering, every day use, found objects and dereliction. I enjoy capturing and celebrating the resilience of nature to man made interventions, and my activist work has a heavy emphasis on calling out short term profit driven decisions that harm people’s connections to places whilst having a huge carbon cost as well.
With ceramics, I use different clays and methods to create multifunctional vessels with various forms, textures, finishes and colours probing perceptions of scale, texture and materiality.
I also enjoy drawing and print making, creating architectural forms, rhythms, patterns and sequences in monochrome and colour.
‘Stay your side’
A protest into the social and carbon costs of demolitions of old community and workplace buildings. This series captures the Bath Press just before demolition, when nature had begun to reclaim it’s fragile structure and the traces of human stories embodied within began to peel away for good.
Series of vessels exploring different clays, glaze and colour.
Found objects in unlikely places and the potential for intricate stories behind how they got there…
I’m founder member of not-for-profit collective Architecture is in my home city of Bath. We organise events to get design, healthcare, education sector and other professionals together with the public to share ideas about how we can create happier, healthier, better, and more equitable cities for everyone.
This series of photographs from Cuba, Mexico, the USA, Canada and Germany followed projects where the adaptation of existing buildings and historic places to new uses sought to reconnect disparate communities to their surroundings, and each other.
Themes of climate change, socio-economic deprivation, regeneration, adaptation and re-use.
