I am an emerging artist with a career in architecture and am a visiting tutor at BSoAD [Birmingham School of Architecture and Design].


My artwork is in contrast / a foil to the precision of architectural drawing being based around the use of softer materials including charcoal & graphite, paint & collage and printmaking.

My art practice explores my relationship to observing and connecting with landscapes. I immerse myself in landscapes, to connect with the land. I observe. I notice the lines in the land, formed by time and movement. I notice forms, structures, patterns.

These spaces do not need a technical, architectural solution, just pure emotion.

I respond intuitively to this space and place through sketching and mark making. I document, record and react making an emotional, abstract response.

This is an evolving method of exploring myself and my response to unstructured natural spaces instead of built environments.

I am interested in exploring and experimenting with materials, forms and textures, with a greater awareness, focus and freedom; to explore the physicality of drawing and to gather a language of mark making.
