As an artist I work and collaborate across multiple disciplines. From drawing, painting and installation, through moving image, to site responsive performance, event and theatre, my work and interests are often rooted in the connections we have to place, land and landscape.
An associate artist of the UK’s leading landscape theatre company Wildworks, I’ve spent over 15 years collaborating and designing in response to a huge variety of places, people and stories. Most recently, I am Kevin was a new piece of theatre, taking audiences on a promenade journey along the shores of Carlyon Bay in Cornwall. Other projects with Wildworks include The Passion of Port Talbot with Michael Sheen and National Theatre Wales, and The Enchanted Palace at Kensington Palace.
As an associate artist at The Eden Project, I’ve collaborated with brilliant teams and individuals across the organisation and beyond to design for immersive experiences such as Earth Story in 2019. This walk-through exhibit was an exploration of our planet’s astonishing past, it’s precarious present, and the actions being taken around the world by inspiring individuals and organisations to combat the Climate Emergency.
In painting and drawing I explore my own relationship to place - belonging, remembering, and imagining. Sometimes beginning with the here and now, but often with a place found in a memory or a snapshot from another time; I draw on imagery from a vast personal archive of photographs to inform the creation of new works on paper, canvas and through installation. Commissions and collaborations such as The Compton Skyline Project and Clay enabled me early on to expand my 2D practice into large scale installations & live events, creating site-specific responses to new landscapes and communities. In different ways, both projects also sparked my interest in the world of digital media, and the excitement of combining creative disciplines.
I'm based at The Yard - Krowji, in Redruth where I have a studio; please feel free to get in contact if you have any queries or would like to arrange a studio visit. You can also follow me on instagram for current project updates.
