I am a visual artist working across media with an interest in photography, video, drawing, painting, and performance. My artistic practice is concerned with understanding, recording, and translating direct experiences of ‘wild’ or ‘remote’ places that are accessible from my home on Morecambe Bay. Much of the work emerges through the act of walking and visiting the same locations over and over again.
The work evolves from material gathered whilst walking, such as photographs, drawings, video clips, and notes. This ongoing personal document contains information about the landscape, its history, and my own relationship to it. I continue to interpret and experiment with this material back in the studio, creating drawings, paintings, multi-media installations, and films.
I do not subscribe to the notion that human beings are somehow separate from nature; but rather that we are a part of it. This attitude is embedded in everything that I make and do.
