Born in 1979 in Gravesend, Kent. Studied in Rochester, Winchester and Bristol. Have travelled extensively and most recently spent three months in Papua New Guinea for the Commonwealth Foundation Arts and Crafts Award 2005.
My work deals with issues linked with identity and tries to explore the sense of self, whether it is in Western Society or in other environments where I have travelled. I work predominantly in mixed media, but am currently working on a body of paintings.
