I am a visual artist and I make installations, sculptures and prints. My work often has a theatrical element while relating in some way to the natural environment. I hate waste and I am passionate about reusing and recycling materials. I enjoy exploring new methods and techniques of making work appropriate to my inspiration and the results can be at once both playful and serious. Last year I began performing with a mobile plant made exclusively from recycled junk. http://heavyplantcrossing2012.blogspot.co.uk/ https://vimeo.com/43166649
I have made works in the UK and internationally in galleries, on the streets, in gardens, on a bridge even in a decommissioned jail. My previous projects have received funding from the Arts Council England, local councils, colleges and private industry.
