I am a Manchester based artist whose practice encompasses drawing, printmaking, animation and installation. My work engages with mapping and visualisation technologies. Residencies and research within scientific institutions regularly inform my practice; they include LifeScience at University of Dundee (2018/9), Neuroscience and Imaging Science at the University of Manchester (2016) and The Christie Hospital (2010). I’m intrigued by what remains immeasurable, illusive and unseen, despite our increasing capacities to visualise and gather data about the world around us.

The process of drawing – with its simplicity, immediacy and directness – remains at the heart of my practice. I experiment with drawing materials that are unstable and fugitive such as oil, natural pigments and clay, as well as working with graphite on paper. I’m interested in exploring what a drawing can reveal, that a scientific visualisation cannot.
