I currently live in Lyme Regis, but grew up on the
Mediterranean island of Ibiza, and the sunny seaside of
Dorset. From grass to grey my journey brought me to Plymouth city where I found my work rebelling against my country
upbringing and reflecting a growing interest in the grunge and grime of the urban environment.
Everything I discover around me has potential... urban
detritus, peeling paint and filthy concrete structures. Rusty old shackles, sturdy old workhorse fishing trawlers, the fishing industry must survive! last of the under gatherers! I find the ugly and mundane to be beautiful, its character and stories inspiring.
