I make art because I believe in beauty
I make art because I believe there are metaphors to be found in nature with the power and beauty to heal and restore. I translate what I see into delicate hand printed linocuts by carefully carving away material from a block in a slow and meditative process, each one taking several days to complete.
My current work is about the flow of life that comes through remaining connected - in family, in community, to our resources and in spirit. Being grounded in connection is the foundation on which we can grow and thrive.
I have a background in Product Design with a degree from Loughborough University, but my passion for materials and traditional craftsmanship led me to pursue a career in fine art. With the support and guidance of practising mentors, I have developed my practice through a journey of self directed learning. I have recently enjoyed exhibiting work in various galleries around the UK and supporting other artists through co-founding the Christian Creative Network UK.
