Some are more equal than others....2018

I'm an artist using photography, sculpture and video. My work is about believing what we see - and the depiction of reality in contemporary art. 

What drives me is the question of whether reality can ever be present in a photograph.  I  am interrogating the photograph as both  'object' and 'message'.
Currently undertaking a PhD at BSAD, Bath Spa University, my work has been shown and is held in collections in the UK and Ireland as well as appearing in publications, public spaces and media.

In 2016, I was awarded the British Institution Prize for my work shown at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and also the Bath Spa Porthleven Prize.
