I am an artist working across a variety of disciplines employing traditional and alternative processes with an interest in slow photography, durational, pinhole and camera-less techniques and printmaking. Working both outside and in a darkroom I manipulate my materials,  painting with light and chemicals to create photographic images that respond to site specific situations, environment, landscape and nature. I enjoy both the expanse of nature and the minutiae looking at cycles of life by recording the decay processes with degenerative series of found and donated creatures, it is the mark making upon the substrate that interests me, what is left behind, the story of that being. In the same way as I enjoy the processes involved in this I also apply those techniques to other organic matter capturing the more ephemeral aspects and emotive responses rather than a series of documentation pieces, such as “Common Ground” an ongoing project based on my allotment, images form this will be exhibited as part of Reclaim Photography Festival in 2020
 
Working on a number of projects simultaneously due to the slow nature of the image making I also enjoy experimenting photographically with pinhole cameras, making my own light capturing devices that get placed out for months at a time in order to record the passage of the sun. A recent project looks at the germination of seeds within cameras, this project has been widely exhibited and will be featured in a forthcoming major pinhole exhibition in Poland.
