My practice encompasses painting, drawing, printmaking and film. After recently graduating from City & Guilds of London Art School, I am now based in Bristol, UK.

My recent work depicts a personal and emotional response to place, centring around the experience of the lone figure isolated within their surroundings, and the energy created from two forms meeting. This push and pull between isolation and connection is a constant dialogue throughout my work. Spending time in the natural landscape, with standing stones, or rock or land formations moulded over time, I felt that I was in the presence of another body, one that was filled with the memories and emotions of that place. Moving between representation and abstraction, these forms and the human figure appear in my work as vessels of feeling, depicted within a space of charged stillness. I draw inspiration from my own memories and experiences, and from the place I grew up, in - The Elan Valley, Wales.
