My practise is concerned primarily with exploring the temporal space between transience and permanence. I make work with photography and moving image but also work with audio, book making and installation. I was awarded the degree of Master of Arts in Photography from the University of Brighton, with an overall Distinction, and a High Distinction for my Degree Show, in 2017.

My work is collected internationally and exhibited widely, including at the Royal Academy of Arts, Royal Scottish Academy, Towner Gallery, Somerset House and the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Art.

My working process requires patient and repeated exploration of each location, an endeavour not immediately apparent and yet indelibly inscribed into the work. Human presence is implied but never depicted. My most recent, intimately related, work Hogsmill Valley (1977) and It Happened Here investigate my concerns mediated via obsession and repetition.

I am currently making new work, a long term project with the preliminary title Like, Forever. The work considers the temporal quality of the civil nuclear endeavour in the British landscape, reflecting on the longevity of its presence in the context of different and escalating time scales including generational, historical and geological.
