Having spent much of my life living at the tip of the Wirral peninsula, a stone’s throw from the beach, my work is informed by a strong connection to the sea. I am drawn to those wild and open spaces at the edges of our lands: shifting sands, cycles of ebb and flow, unpredictable seas and reflected light.
Whether working close to home or further afield in more remote coastal locations, my aim is to simplify this dynamic, littoral landscape to its essential elements of colour and form.
I exhibit regularly in solo and group shows across the UK, most recently at London’s OXO Gallery. I also work as a photographic tutor, offering tailored workshop sessions to anyone who would like to use their camera more creatively.
In 2017 I was privileged to visit the wild, western coast of arctic Greenland and studio tour visitors will be able to see some of my first printed work from this trip.
I have also continued to explore book arts as an alternative way of presenting my photographic work and several new handmade books will be on display during the weekend.
