I am a multimedia 3D artist, specialising in ceramics and site specific installations. My work is responsive – responding to ideas, events or collections of objects. My work develops from this initial response, considering how this can be represented in a contemporary way within the context of my material practice. I often choose to create my work in ceramic for it’s broad range of historical connotations, from everyday tableware, to satire and sculpture. Ceramic objects have a familiarity to them – I find it interesting to expand on that; to bring a new or surprising face to an everyday material. I enjoy the versatility of the material, using clay in it’s plastic form to sculpt and build, or in it’s liquid form to cast objects from moulds. I am inspired by objects and work that can evoke a response and curiosity in the viewer.

I am currently researching for the Exchange Residency with Tees Valley Arts and Navigator North considering the physical and lived history of Exchange Square, Middlesbrough. I am also working on a new experimental body of more personal work supported by an Arts Council England Developing Your Creative Practice grant considering my own heritage and how the diaspora can relate to a culture and heritage not experienced first hand.
