profile

I seek to create artwork and designs that will stand the test of time, that present intelligent solutions using visual communication and surface design. I enjoy the challenges of designing for a range of contexts and my design process encompasses both hand-rendering and digital manipulation in order to create the perfect solution in every situation.

I look, see & interpret the world I am interested in using drawing and printmaking. My art and design practice is inextricably linked, building a creative language with commercial awareness and market experience of public art & gallery projects, bespoke commissions & freelance commercial design. It is important to me that I support British manufacturers, both large and small, in the production of my work.

The allotment, kitchen gardens, and the changing landscapes of Britain have been key inspiration in my work, resulting most recently in my 'Plot to Plate' collection of printed textile and paper products. I am particularly interested in the translation of three-dimensional space to a two-dimensional page and explore diagrammatic languages of elevation, perspective and plan views to create new interpretations of place, space and pattern.

I enjoy writing and researching in relation to my practice and regularly publish blog articles on my interest in design heritage, creative processes and seeing through the eyes of a designer.
