I am an interdisciplinary artist working across media with an interest in photography, video, sound, drawing, and performance. My artistic practice is concerned with understanding, recording, and translating direct experiences of environments on and around Morecambe Bay, where I live. 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 and audio clips. This ongoing document contains information about the land, its history, and my own relationship to it. I continue to interpret and experiment with this material back in the studio, creating drawings, multi-media installations, and films. Recent work explores aspects of time in relation to place, my physical and mental relationship to the environment through walking, mobile technology, and climate change.
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.
