I try to make sense of the world through drawing. I take drawing to be more than a technique – rather a disposition that reveals our connections with the world of materials and each other. Resulting in works that superficialy collapse the idea of a consistent artist style yet are inherently linked.
In places over extended periods I consider and support improvisation. Focusing on what we create to cope with our immediate problems. Be it in farms, refuges, caravan parks, lockdown…. I build deep connections and aim to celebrate the overlooked, but more powerfully than this – show that those who go unnoticed matter.
I use drawing based co-production and process-led approaches and work in collaboration with organisations and specialists including architects, researchers and curators. I am an experienced mentor and educator who challenges and disrupts thinking, supporting people to reflect on or activate change.
