Born in Manchester living in the Pennines


My paintings and collographic prints are about the landscape. They consider the narrative between humanity and the environment by recording the impact of industry in my area. Recently in Lockdown I have become aware of these scars in the landscape left from the Industrial Revolution. Further research has connected this work with the aerial photography of the  massive  open cast mines in Australia and the Anthropocene Project .As a result my work is becoming more abstract and critically engaged moving away from a representational approach. These colourful, vibrant textured surfaces resonates with the land, evoking the deep geological memories ingrained in the rocks and hills of the Pennines.
