After 6 years of part-time study I graduated from
the University of Nottingham in 2008 with a BA Fine
Art (Hons), 1st class.
I am a member of the East Midlands-based artists’
collective Socket, and since graduating have taken
part in various group exhibitions and residencies.
I am interested in Natural history themes which I
explore using small-scale assemblages and digital
I live near Attenborough Nature Reserve, a
patchwork of lakes and islands which has evolved
from worked-out gravel pits into an important
nature conservation site. My initial interest was in
the process of recolonisation of the reserve’s open
water, but my focus has widened to encompass the
nearby River Trent, which deposited the valuable
gravel and sand reserves in the first place. I have
been exploring the Trent upstream and down, and
discovering its place in the hierarchy of waterways
that criss-cross our island.
