I have been taking photographs for over 25 years, working with both with digital and analogue, exploring pattern, shape, texture, growth, decay, patina, corrosion; experimenting, finding the meeting points of natural and man-made. I hand-process and make prints in the darkroom and use slower processes such as cyanotype, van Dyck, chlorophyll, anthotype and lumen printing, which allow me to spend longer with each image and slow down the print making process.
In 2009, in partnership with Amy McKenny, I founded CoExist (now TAP Gallery & Studios) - a not-for-profit, artist-led gallery and studios housed in an old Water Works in Southend-on-sea. In 2010 and 2011 I co-ordinated Artside, a major contemporary Arts festival in Southend High Street, handling event management, marketing and design including printed and online/social media (see Press coverage).
I currently have a studio in Leigh-on-sea where I continue to work and run photography and darkroom workshops on demand.
