“On leaving school at 16, I was set into life in a factory pushing buttons on a machine that made metal boxes. After several years in Adult Education, I am now a visual artist, poet and arts facilitator who works within the context of fine art. My work is grounded in documentary, exploring the inner beauty of everyday life through various lens-based media. Notions of nostalgia and social commentary are present but from a definite northern working-class perspective. I work instinctively, exploring the townscapes of North Wales and the North West, often producing work that reflects the everyday minutiae of life.”
