My Work

About Me

I have been making artworks since 1987. These have covered many different approaches spanning over fifty different projects. They are always Reflexive in their approach; that is to say they always seek to reflect issues pertaining to the situations I find myself to be in. These artworks have always sought to challenge the formal processes of art. My first concerns dealt with questioning the very nature of artistic authorship and professional practice.

As things progressed, I became more involved in teaching and shifted my attention to addressing the education process itself. I have become increasingly concerned with focusing on the role and responses of participants and their behaviours. This is evident in the current Resistances project where the art making processes revolve around visually evidencing the everyday resistant actions and behaviours of school pupils.

I have been involved in education for nearly thirty years and am dedicated to trying to improve the wider system. I have worked in various different teaching capacities in many different schools. I continue to be involved in school community art projects, specifically addressing mental health issues.

I am a non-profit making artist.

Habitually, I find myself constantly embroiled in an art-making process that traces the everyday actions of society at large.
