I am a  artist and fabricator based in Bristol.  I graduated with first class honours from Drawing and Applied Arts at UWE. I have since gone onto work as a bronze caster, working on sculptures for some of the biggest names in the contemporary art world.

My own practice relies heavily on the reciprocity of materials and process to work in conjunction with concept.  My work plays on ideas of impermanence and the finite existence of the organic.
