Artist Statement

My practice, whether print, sculpture, film or writing, has always been fed by social and political issues. Themes of equality and fairness are regularly revisited. I studied Fine Art (Sculpture) in Bath 1991–3. Following a life-changing accident, I returned to university to study BA Time Based Media Production (1st Hons) 2001-4 and MA Screenwriting awarded with Distinction in 2005 at Bristol’s University of the West of England.

I have written and directed several films and documentaries, which have been selected for official screenings at Zinebi Festival for Documentaries and Short Films in Bilbao, Sehsüchte in Potsdam, Brief Encounters in Bristol and broadcast on HTV West.

My artwork is held in public collections at Ashmolean Museum, Oxford and Manchester Metropolitan University and private collections around the world. I am an elected member of the Society of Wood Engravers http://www.woodengravers.co.uk/
