I work with a scalpel, cutting paper by hand to create layers, series and multiples. There are two distinct strands to my work; the first is layered land and townscapes that use flat areas of coloured paper and occasional detail to create an impression of the landscape and a sense of quiet.

The second strand, and the focus of my current research, uses documents and books to create sculptures that challenge our understanding of the role of these documents and facilitate an exploration of individual and collective memory.

My work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including the RA Summer Exhibition, the Viviane Fontaine International Paper Triennial in Switzerland, for which I was awarded 3rd prize in 2023, and the Paper Fibre Art Biennial in Taiwan.

I graduated in Visual Arts: Drawing from Camberwell College of Arts in 2003. In 2020 I completed an MFA at Oxford Brookes and am currently researching for a PhD by Practice.
