I was born in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex and currently live in Brighton.


I studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths. After 10 years in the London squatting scene I rented a flat, trained as a propmaker and then worked in the TV and theatre industries for 20 years, eventually specialising in children’s game shows as a games and set designer.


I have now returned to my roots as a fine artist and I am passionate about exploring socio-political environmental issues through my work.


I have always worked behind the scenes but in 2014, through my desire to make art that might 'change the world', I became a part of a forum theatre group, Speak Up Act Out, working in various roles.


I am very interested in working in areas that combine care for the environment, community and education.
