Consultant Artist Technician Service Provider
I’m a mixed media artist that combines found objects and materials with the vocabulary of painting to explore ideas around taste, tradition and process. Whilst I embrace retro art practices, I confront the so-called ‘death of painting’ with a playful DIY approach to making, revamping the conventions of abstract painting with modern materials and experimental methods of production. Shifting between styles, I explore the act, process and materiality of painting as it battles a world of commercial images, new media art forms and its own historical baggage.
I was born in Birmingham in 1983, and graduated from Liverpool John Moores University with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art in 2006. I’ve exhibited in galleries and festivals including mac Birmingham, The Coventry Biennial, Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, Test Space-Spike Island (Bristol), Ikon Gallery (Birmingham), and Towner Eastbourne. I’m currently the Technical Director of The Coventry Biennial of Contemporary Art.
