I’m a practicing printmaker based in the UK who uses intaglio processes to record contemporary industrial landscapes, translating the impacts of human and non-human agencies tacitly implied through the interrelationship between the matrix and the print acting as a reinterpretation of posthuman landscapes.
My practice as an emerging artist has evolved into an interest in the environmental and political implications of waste created by post-modern industries. Particularly the energy recovery centres Suez and Viridor and the Magnox Decommissioned Nuclear Power Stations [Berkeley, Oldbury, Sellafield, Bradford etc] acting as a witness to these rapidly changing landscapes. My current self-funded research project is focusing on Atomic Landscapes in the UK and what happens to radioactive waste after it has been reprocessed and the long-terms plans for its disposal.
I was recently awarded the Kingslake-Jones Drawing Prize 2021 for drawing and State of the Art award 2021, Printmaking Today after completing a BA in Drawing & Print at UWE (University West of England).
