I am a sculptor and environmental artist whose main interest over is in Art in Public Places. I have worked throughout the U.K. as well as overseas in both urban and rural landscapes, indoors and outdoors and have made sculptures which have been both permanent and temporary. My sculpture is site specific in that it relates totally to the site taking into consideration the architecture, the landscape, the history, economy, ecology or mythology of the area. I use a wide variety of materials relevant to the project – wood, stone, bricks, steel, bronze, planting, rope, sand, water, glass, light, plastics, even feathers, silk flowers and drinks cans, and snow, etc. and enjoy working on both large and small scale.
With a background in traditional basketmaking and a real passion for willow, I am driven to design and make art which challenges pre-conceptions about basketry. Commissions are always welcome.

Drawing from the figure is a necessary discipline for all artists especially figurative artists, so my portraits and paintings are an extension of this.
Most of my paintings are initially executed in one sitting, of up to four hours from the model, and then they can be worked on again later. By working quickly I hope to keep my work fresh.
Although most of my subject matter is figurative, I have painted most subjects including landscapes, animals, and flowers.
I love colour and have drawn and painted in most mediums- oils, watercolour, acrylics, pastels, crayon, conté, charcoal.
I am an ecological artist based near Stoke-on-Trent and the focus of my practice concerns people's connection with Nature in their everyday lives.
Recent practice has involved creating opportunities for people to engage with Nature through a number of garden projects:
- In Flight Diner - an avian intervention, commissioned by AirSpace Gallery, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent for their Bird Yarden
- How Does Your Garden Grow? - a conversation initiated with allotmenteers around Stoke-on-Trent about their relationship with Nature with resulted in an exhibition of photographs and a seed-planting workshop at The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery.
- Meantime Meadows - a guerrilla gardening project based on city demolition sites. Explored people's relationship with wildflowers and notions of the beauty and worth of 'weed' species.
- Memory Garden - a reminiscence and mapping project with the senior sitizens of Hanley Heritage Group using memories of gardens, plants and people, from whom they had become disconnected with, through the progression of age.
- Grow Your Own Garden Festival - a proposal for a Second Stoke-on-Trent garden Festival that explored making the city an ecological network by connecting gardens, waterways and green spaces.
- Last Post - a mail art swansong for the pillar box and a guerrilla garden project.
A qualified horticulturalist (BTEC HND in Landscape Design, RHS level 1 & 2 in Horticulture) I am often found up to my elbows in mud, be it on my organic-run allotment or whilst initiating art and horticulture in non-art spaces.
