Since 2001 I have been working on large scale projects in the public realm both in the capacity of commissioned artist and creative consultant for permanent and temporary schemes. These opportunities have enabled collaboration with architect and landscape designer to successfully introduce a creative dynamic within urban regeneration initiatives, often drawing on scientific expertise, in the fields of space, microbiology, ecology and acoustics. Concern for environment and sustainability has introduced new narratives in my work in which layers of meaning are now projected through material, form and location - and in relation to the surrounding built environment.

Born in Millom, Cumbria on completing a BA Degree in Fine Art at Nottingham Trent University in 1991 I remained in the City in order to establish a studio practice at Can Studio, Oldknows Factory, I was geanted with awards from Arts Council England, Pollack Krasner Foundation (New York) and The British Council. These were followed by exhibition commissions, residencies and research bursaries in the UK and to visit Portugal (2004), Spain, Germany (2007),and China (2008) and Finland (2015).
