My work is multimedia, multidisciplinary and often collaborative. It encompasses drawing, paint, sculpture, performance, installation and expedition. I am inspired by nature and by human relationships to the world and am particularly interested in bridging traditional divides between art and science.

In 2017-18 I was Leverhulme artist in residence at Sheffield University, spending ten months working in the Geography department with the ice scientists and one month with them in the field in Svalbard in the High Arctic.  My recent exhibition 'ice report' comes from this residency.

In 2015 I was expedition artist on board S/v Ezra, a 44' traditional wooden sailing vessel, on a journey from Cornwall to remote East Greenland.  Never having sailed before, I learnt to sail while documenting the journey and the experience in sketches and photos.  I have also collaborated with academics on research in outback Australia and on 'All About Migration', a global, postal, art-science, public-participation project and installation.

I live in Exeter and am deeply involved in the cultural life of the city.
