Illustration, drawing, writing and curation. I currently work a lot with printmaking, casting and mould making as well as digital drawing.

I worked with illustration, mould making and casting for about 10 years often with film prosthetics and horror effects before moving away from 3d work in 2008, and back in to a more drawing-based practice. During this time I trained as a printmaker and had experience of editioning prints, publishing and making my own fine-art prints. I have recently returned to looking at 3d materials and life casting to see how it now fits in with what I do. My work often has a narrative component, and is based around organic forms or process-based drawing. I am interested in a lot of things, though, and more often than not my work just involves trying to puzzle out life through making.
