I am a Cumberland born artist who originally studied Fine Art at Sheffield and Chelsea. This website introduces my recent work and gradually documents key previous pieces that continue to influence me. These works play with dichotomy and reflection on the surrounding world. They hover between a seeming concrete reality on one hand and underlying dislocation on the other. Often the blizzard of daily imagery can numb our perceptive facilities,  often we measure our reality based on what might be absolute fabrication. I hope these works sharpen the senses by sharing structure and context a little bit further in 2 & 3 dimensions, evolving new narratives which reflect our unspoken experiences. These can both cement expectation and gently fracture it.
