I live and work in Coventry, UK. I am a writer and artist using photography and text, sometimes together, sometimes apart, to explore ways in which to create narrative. My work seeks to articulate a way of seeing that helps me to better understand my relationship both to myself, and the wider experiences of my personal, political and built environment. Attached to observations of repetition, habit, change, and degradation, increasingly my images strive to find ways past direct representation, and are driven by alternative processes making use of text, ink, plant based dyes and paints to interact with silver gelatin prints created in the darkroom, in order to deconstruct, destroy, or alter. Over the last 20 years, I have written and made work for touring theatre projects, seeing my plays performed at the Edinburgh Festival, in Europe, America, and closer to home in Coventry city centre where, in a disused chip shop, alongside my partner, for the last 10 years I have run a community arts space called the Shop Front Theatre.
