I create processes and objects.

The task of creating something new, unexpected or surprising from my exploration of material and working methods is the motivation behind my work.

A persistent feature is the question of how to remove the use of glue or traditional fixings. This thought is not a limitation or a rule, but used as an opportunity to develop new techniques that can in turn influence new and unusual forms.

My work's aesthetic draws influence from a lifelong interest in inventing, engineering and making. This is an interest that has always been encouraged by the industrial landscapes of Northern England near to where I grew up.

Although my objects are built around forms that are clearly functional, I don't see this as either an objective or reason to create.

I studied on the 3D Design: Designer Maker course at Plymouth University, graduating in 2011.

After a period working at a prestigious furniture studio in the Republic of Ireland, I now live and work in Knutsford, Cheshire, which is my home town.
