Based on the Wirral peninsula coast, North West England, I am an interdisciplinary artist, curator and activist. Through my diverse practice I endeavour to reveal creative patterns embodied within our symbiosis with places, environments and natural systems.

My imagination is captured by the poetics of nature, and the stories and deep time aesthetics of landscape. By way of creatively exploring this fascination, in recent years my artworks have often incorporated digital video, field recordings, text and organic matter. I am drawn to the edges of things – temporal and entangled spaces that offer rich possibilities for creativity.

What drives my activity as a curator, is a desire to connect people, ideas and actions in order to create complex and resonant relationships in our world that might otherwise remain unrealised. I regard this socially-engaged practice as facilitating the emergence of ‘ecological consciousness’. My curation is rooted in interdisciplinary collaboration and experimentation.

I am an Associate of the CIWEM Arts & Environment Network and a member of the International Eco-Art Network. In 2013 I became an affiliate of Cape Farewell.
